Welcome from the Office of Admission


Thank you for your interest in learning more about Santa Barbara’s top-rated, one-of-a-kind educational experience. We look forward to meeting you and sharing the exceptional opportunities available to students in Preschool—Grade 12.

We provide several opportunities to visit throughout the year.

  • Call to schedule a personalized tour and consultation for you and your family
  • Attend an Open House
  • Schedule a Shadow Day for your student

Applying to an independent school can be confusing, especially with the many options on the educational landscape. We are available to help you through the process of making the best choice reflecting your family’s values and aspirations for your child’s future. Selecting the right school for your family is a process requiring prayer, guidance, and helpful information. We would be honored to share in this journey with you.

We look forward to meeting you and your family. We are here to walk you through this process and respond to any questions you may have. (Not sure what questions to ask? Take a look at our guide for middle and high school, Are We Asking the Right Questions?)
