A Look Back at Our 2016-2017 Accomplishments!

2016-2017 Accomplishments

We’re heading toward the end of another incredible school year here at Orinda Academy, and we’re very proud of what our prep school students have achieved! The 2016-2017 school year started with a retreat to the redwoods, where our advisors and students bonded over s’mores. Later, our entire college prep school headed out to seeOthello at Cal Shakes. We’ve been busy with all-school meetings and advisory chats to talk about hot button issues like feminism, race, and religion.

Somewhere in the midst of our ever-popular winter concert, visit to the Oakland Museum, and Black History Month presentations, we managed to find the time to create a totally new country in our World Cultures/Environmental Science cross-curricular mashup. Our Environmental Science students have also been hard at work on an ongoing watershed restoration project, our physics students have been busy building rollercoasters, and our Spanish students built an altar forDia de los Muertos. On top of all those accomplishments, the house cat at our college prep school welcomed her kittens! We’re grateful to our incredible school community for coming together to help them all find loving homes.
