Our highly personalized & immersive approach

All parents want their children to be happy and successful. That’s what we want, too. Our private day and boarding high school in Pasadena fuses the best of the past with the best of the future. We’ve redesigned every aspect of the high school experience so that learning is highly individualized, totally immersive, and uniquely multicultural. 

A truly multicultural school: classmates from 30+ countries

Few other schools can match the “mini-UN” vibe of an EF Academy campus. Almost every class, activity, and event becomes “global studies.” Students constantly expand their worldviews with multiple perspectives while sharing their culture and traditions. 

Personalized education — one size never fits all

Every student is unique — that’s why every learning journey must be unique. We craft a custom pathway for every student based on their talents and strengths. Advisors help set personalized growth goals and develop a plan for achieving them with courses and co-curricular activities each student cares about. 

Mastery of skills, not memorization of facts

Here, students learn how to think – the real secret to success. All courses are designed around the skills and knowledge needed to flourish in adult life, not just facts and figures to pass the next test. Because it’s not the knowledge itself that’s important. It’s all about how it's used.
