School Tour 

A great place to begin your journey would be to visit during a regular school day. School tours give you a sense of what a regular day looks like at the Academy. You will be able to observe the classroom, witness how students engage with the curriculum and collaborate with each other, and see how our innovative teachers make thinking visible. The tour also includes a brief presentation on the school’s history, mission, and curriculum.

Tours are generally about an hour long. 

Upcoming Tour Dates (stay-tuned)

We are also available for personal tours. Please contact our school to schedule, 562.283.4456.
