What Students Say About Us
Hear directly from our families about the Orinda Academy impact
The transformation in our students is not magic–it’s the natural result of embracing students’ differences, shining a light on their potential, and inspiring them to take action. We proudly graduate success story after success story.
Orinda Academy students maintain a lasting relationship with us, returning to introduce us to new spouses, emailing to share a promotion, and giving back as mentors or donors.
WHY THEY COME BACK
We like to think it’s because we’re just that cool. But actually, we know students view OA as the place where their lives pivoted from anonymity and frustration to renewed energy and excitement for life and learning. OA became a place where their academic and social lives started making more sense and fit with who they really were.
We can’t possibly do justice to each unique story. Hear from our students, parents, and graduates first hand.
