School description

The well-known private board of Southwestern Academy was founded in 1924: a mixed form of education was immediately accepted here (both boys and girls are taught on equal terms) and two equivalent campuses are based - one in San Marino (California), the other in Rimrock (Arizona). Educational programs - the course of middle and high school (+ graduating classes and preparation for the university). On both campuses, the same schedule and content of the curriculum are accepted, so students can participate in the internal school "student exchange" and study on another campus for a week, a month or even a semester.

Teachers practice an individual, personal approach to each student - classes include only 8-12 students, which gives each person maximum personal attention. Especially often this support is required for foreign students who first came to study in another country. In total, 30 specialists teach at both campuses - among them there are young teachers, and professors with vast experience (including with foreign students). The teaching principle includes a large number of interactive classes, a constant change in the format of lessons, oral work with the class and the maximum involvement of each student in the learning process.

The total number of Academy students today reaches 195 people: 50 study in Arizona (13 years), 145 in California (admission from 11 years), including 35 foreigners representing More than 25 foreign countries. All educational classes are formed, not based on the age of the students, but on their academic performance, achievements, level of knowledge. For example, a student of grade 9 may well enroll in an algebra courseII , an advanced level with alumni if ​​he "pulls" this complexity.
