Our Approach

Anacapa School offers a 7th-12th grade academic experience for students and families who opt for a rigorous and innovative learning environment.

We deliver an education designed to emphasize and celebrate ingenuity. We recognize that inspiration is personal, and confidence is foundational for a successful student of life.

We believe in intelligent and complex discourse between students and their faculty. We believe in responsible risk-taking and the deep power of community.

The Anacapa teachers are our stars. We seek individuals who are deeply committed to the philosophy of education, and who are practitioners beyond the classroom. We hire professionals with varied interests, and who share the common goal of supporting students in and out of the classroom. Our teachers are given the autonomy to design their classes in ways that celebrate their personal strengths and experience.

Anacapa School empowers students to excel at critical thinking, creativity, integrity and compassion.
