Welcome to Orinda Academy!

Introduction

Tap into your very best

At Orinda Academy we do things differently.

We’re all about relationships — the ones you’ll form with your teachers as you dive in deep to subjects you love — and the ones you’ll build with classmates across all grades.

We’re a college prep school that’s tuned in to what you need to be successful.

Our intentionally small community is here to get to know you and keep you from getting lost in the shuffle. We’ll support you as you find your learning style, find your people, and discover your very best self.

Admissions

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