School for Students with Mild to Moderate Learning Differences in the Bay Area

Stanbridge Academy is a caring, inclusive K-12 school for students with mild to moderate learning differences and social communication disorders. We use an individualized, whole student approach so that students thrive and develop their academic, social, and emotional capabilities to their fullest potential.

Academics: The core of Stanbridge Academy is our academic program. Small class sizes at all grade levels allow for differentiated instruction to meet the needs of all learners. California content standards form the foundation of our curriculum. Stanbridge is accredited by WASC and is a provisional member of CAIS.

Social Learning: The development of social-emotional, self-regulation, and executive functioning skills is embedded into our curriculum and throughout the school day. All students participate in social learning class once per week.

Experiential Learning: Our program integrates experiential learning through overnight and day trips, as well as on-campus assemblies and curriculum-based projects. We also provide a comprehensive school experience with electives, after-school clubs, and sports teams.

Transitions: Transition counseling includes building life skills, preparing for college, and training for the workforce. Stanbridge also offers a post-secondary program for students needing additional assistance after graduating from high school.
