Orinda Academy helps every student succeed. We put a rigorous curriculum within reach of every student and challenge students to excel beyond what they previously thought possible.
The safe and nurturing environment allows students to shine as their best selves. We embrace differences so students can meet their full potential and expand their dreams for success, both at Orinda Academy and beyond.
“The visit was definitely the tipping point. I knew that night OA was where I belonged.”
The best way to see if OA is right for you and your family is to come visit. Meet Janet, our Admissions Director for an introductory tour that gives you an overview of our campus and a peek in a classroom or two. You can also join us at one of our three annual open houses. Contact Us.
As part of the application your student will join Orinda Academy for a morning of classes. We pair your child with an OA student who will guide them through classes, study hall, and more. The same day, your student will have a brief one-on-one interview with Janet (our Admissions Director) or Ron (our Head of School).
For families seeking financial aid, please complete the Parent Financial Statement (SSS) using Orinda Academy’s school code number #5379. Both parents (regardless of marital status) must submit information and 1040 tax forms.
