Leader in Education for 30+ 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.
Treating Students as Individuals
Our teachers and staff take a sincere interest in the well-being of our
students, because we recognize that we are entrusted with the task of
caring for them and ensuring they receive the finest possible education.
We recognize that every student is different, and we accordingly accommodate
different learning styles to help each one get the most out of their time
at our school.
Our student support services include:
- Academic Coaching

We do everything in our power to help our students thrive and excel. The
curriculum at Orinda Academy is based on a solid academic foundation,
and includes the following:

Orinda Academy offers a wide range of extracurricular activities ranging
