Orinda Academy Announcement from the Founder and Head of the School

Orinda Academy

We are very excited about our 2012-2013 school year. We plan to have an all school retreat soon after school begins to get the year off to a great start, get acquainted, have fun, and set some community standards to provide a smooth transition to the new school year. Additionally, we have hired some fantastic new staff for our reinvigorated middle school program, which will be unique, collaborative, and student-centered. Additionally, all middle school students will be given an Apple Ipad to work with. We have added American Sign Language to our curriculum and an after school African Drumming, Music, and Dance class. Our possibilities for our spring Educational Adventures Program include Hawaii, Scotland/Wales, Cuba, and China.  With our partner Student Organizational Services we are offering an after school Study Tools and Homework Strategies Clinic. We also have a student exchange program with a Russian high school planned
