Welcome Back, Alumni!

On Wednesday, January 6th, Sierra Canyon Alumni gathered in the Upper Campus Library to speak to current juniors and seniors about their college experiences. College counselors Steve Burnett and Stephanie Rubin moderated a panel of 19 alumni as they answered questions regarding the college admissions process, academic adjustments, living situations, time management responsibilities, and much more. After the panel session, faculty and staff joined our alumni to mingle and catch up – another special opportunity for our community to reconnect.

We love to welcome our alumni back to campus, and we thank them all for making a positive impression on our juniors and seniors!

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.
