We welcome applications for admission to grades 8 through 12. The first step in the application for admission process is to explore our website and become familiar with our application information, academic programs and the community environment. Those seeking admission must submit all application forms.

A complete application includes the following:

Online Application

Shadow Visit

Shadow visits for students are available throughout most of the year. You may schedule this visit before completing or submitting an application. Visits are designed for you to learn more about our school, and to provide you with the opportunity to assess the benefits of our school.

To schedule a visit, contact the Admissions Office at (925) 254-7553 ext 1005, email admission@orindaacademy.org, or request a shadow visit online. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter or go to our Facebook page to be kept up to date on the latest news and upcoming Orinda Academy events.

Student Interview

We often do the interview during the student's shadow visit, but if you need to schedule an interview once your application has been received, you can contact the Admissions Office at admission@orindaacademy.org or (925) 254-7553.
