San Marino, CA

Southwestern Academy
Boarding, Grades 9-12

Founded in 1924 when San Marino was covered in orange groves, Southwestern Academy has become a school rich in culture and diversity. For 97 years, we have supported the educational needs of both domestic and international students in grades 6-12. Our close-knit community of faculty and staff make every student feel like part of our family.

Southwestern Academy has two co-ed campuses with boarding and day classes in San Marino, California and at a satellite ranch in Rimrock, Arizona. Our unique campuses provide a peaceful, safe, and beautiful space for students to thrive. Our small class settings allow students to receive the attention they require while maximizing their abilities to develop. Academic programs on both campuses include college preparatory courses, ESL (English as a Second Language), and post graduate curricula. Extracurricular activities include soccer, tennis, volleyball, music, visual/media arts, basketball, and baseball along with several clubs suited for a variety of interests.

We invite you to explore our community online and in person with private tours to discover what we offer. Our students have found a place to belong. Maybe it’s your place, too.
