From The Athenian School

The Athenian School believes that the best way to master academic subjects is to experience their application first hand. In our rigorous and academic program, students from San Francisco's East Bay and around the world immerse themselves deeply in course work, inspiring each other to think critically, problem solve, and collaborate as global citizens. Our 75-acre campus, 530+ students (6-12), and class size averaging 15, make us an idyllic learning environment. Visit our website to see examples of our hands on and joyful learning at work in the classroom and beyond. From time in the wilderness to international exchanges and conferences with partner schools around the world, Athenian offers a truly unique learning experience.

Athenian students graduate with the skills and knowledge to thrive in college and are poised for a life of intellectual adventure and meaningful contribution.
