Welcome to Orinda Academy

At Orinda Academy, we believe in the transformative power of high schools and the students who bring them to life.

We know that the right high school can nurture, develop, and empower a teenager to step into adulthood as a bright, confident, and joyful learner. Each day, we embrace this opportunity with great intention: by keeping our enrollment small and hiring outstanding faculty, we guide and teach students as unique individuals, each with their own potential to change the world.

We believe that high school is the perfect time and place to develop your voice.

At Orinda Academy, we listen. 


Early admissions runs from September to March and our application is housed on the Ravenna portal.
