Leader in Education for 35 Years

Since 1982, Orinda Academy has been educating students from Contra Costa County and Alameda County in an intimate, nurturing environment. With a student-to-teacher ratio of 9:1 and an enrollment of only 90-100 students, our private, non-profit school provides an environment where students can learn, connect, and grow into well-rounded young adults who are prepared to make their way in the world.

Orinda Academy is more than just a school; it is a place where students from 8th to 12th grade can develop intellectually, discover themselves, and prepare for the future. It is our mission to provide a college preparatory education to empower each student to reach his or her full potential as a successful, confident, self-reliant individual, including those smart, creative students with learning differences.
