Athenian believes that the best way to master academic subjects in to experience their application first hand.

In our rigorous program, talented students from around the East Bay and the world immerse themselves deeply in course work, inspiring each other to think critically, problem solve, and collaborate as global citizens.

Classes average 15 students on our beautiful 75-acre campus. Buses transport students from throughout the East Bay. Unmatched experiences broaden students’ horizons: focus days (middle school), international, community service, and wilderness programs.

Athenian graduates thrive in the colleges of their choice and are poised for a life of intellectual adventure and meaningful contribution. This is education as it should be.
