See how we do school differently!
From our UC compliant graduation requirements to numerous honors and AP classes, your time at OA will prepare you for college and life beyond.
The Orinda Academy team is dedicated to creating a nurturing learning environment; we hold office hours and are available for questions and mentoring. Administrators have an open-door policy.
Students learn in many different ways. We accommodate mild to moderate learning differences and work hard to make sure no one slips through the cracks. Check out the way OA supports students here.
Supports are in place from day one to help you to connect with classmates, find your way around, and adapt to a new learning environment. Upper-grade student ambassadors are on hand to guide you.
Orinda Academy uses RenWeb to track assignments, attendance, and report grades; parents and students can log in and get up-to-date reports on academic progress. Teachers are available via email, during office hours, and by appointment for questions about homework.
Located near a BART station, students from across the Bay Area have easy access to Orinda Academy. Our OA parent group also facilitates carpooling for families preferring to drop off and pick up in person.
