Parents Go Back to School

Lower School teachers welcomed parents to Sierra Canyon on Thursday, September 18 for the annual Back to School Night.

Greeted by Head of School Jim Skrumbis, Lower School Dean Adam Horwitz, and Lower School Director Kris Theodoratos, parents enjoyed refreshments in the Orange Grove on a cool fall evening before visiting their children’s classrooms.

“This is my favorite night of the school year,” Director Theodoratos said. “It’s a great opportunity for parents to see firsthand what their children have been learning during the first few weeks of school, and to get better acquainted with teachers.”

For new families, it was also an opportunity to meet other parents, and existing Sierra Canyon families made them feel welcome by sharing their experiences on campus.

Program specialists, including Spanish, Music, and Athletics, were also available to answer questions and provide information about available activities for students to sign-up. The School Store was open for uniform and spirit wear purchases, and members of the Parents Association were also on hand to encourage parents to become involved in life at Sierra Canyon.

View a slideshow from the Back to School evening.

On Tuesday, September 23, parents of 7th – 12th grade students will have the same opportunity on the Upper Campus, beginning at 7pm. Parents are encouraged to attend and meet the faculty and staff during the two hour event.

Welcome to Sierra Canyon School

Located on 35 beautiful, rustic acres in the Chatsworth neighborhood of the northwest San Fernando Valley, Sierra Canyon School is distinguished by its commitment to excellence in education, the arts, and athletics while preparing students to live and thrive in the twenty-first century. 


Sierra Canyon is a selective independent, nondenominational, coeducational day school with two campuses: The Lower School, for students in Early Kindergarten - 6th Grade, is beautiful and provides the perfect setting for young children to discover the joys of learning, while the Upper School, for students in grades 712, evokes a modern, collegiate setting where parents are proud to send their children. 


Our educational programs are grounded in the Liberal Arts tradition, and designed to inspire students to pursue their passions whether they be in science, a foreign language, math, English, fine arts, history, architecture, the visual or performing arts, or athletics. Students also learn about the importance of giving and helping others through service learning projects at every grade level, while small classroom settings ensure children explore, and immerse themselves in topics presented.
