Although this school is expensive, the education is well worth the money. I have gone to school here for four years, I am now a graduating senior. I am sad to say I will never experience a community of this quality. The teachers and students respect each other in a way that isn't something you would experience at a larger school. The students are so accepting and open; I have formed strong bonds and made lifelong friendships. What's more, I have been accepted to every school I have applied to, thanks to my awesome college counselors and the quality education the teachers provided. There is never a lack of support and genuine care from everyone that is at Sonoma Academy. I am truly sad to leave, but also prepared.

Sonoma Academy was an amazing experience. Everything you choose to be a part of, clubs, sports, classes, and the entire community overall, will reward you greatly. I have learned so much and its preparation for future education is exceptional. I have made so many memories I can never forget, and I thank them very much.
Sonoma Academy is a very community orientated place that welcomes all newcomers and familiar faces alike. In my four years at this wonderful place, I have found a sense of family within the students, teachers, and workers.
