Admission

Welcome

Is Learning Forward for your Family?

Since our founding four decades ago, a spirit of enthusiastic creativity has swept through Sierra Canyon School. That spirit grows stronger, as our carefully designed Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 program expands every child’s vision, ambition, and capability a little more every day. 

In our Lower School's verdant enclave, your children discover and hone their indelible talents and abiding interests. Our nurturing program intentionally builds academic agility, genuine confidence, and compassionate characterpreparing your child to thrive in the intensive intellectual laboratories of our Middle and Upper Schools.

From that capacious launch pad, your child sets forth for college and beyond as an uncommonly self-aware, self-advocating, and self-directed young adult.

We call that Learning Forward.

If you think our program could be the right choice for your family, we invite you to explore our website, take a tour, and get started on our admission process.
