School Details

Key Facts

  • In classes of 8 to 12 students, each student benefits from personalized attention. It’s the key to unlocking your potential, whether you’re a highly motivated learner or a bright student with good capabilities who could be doing better. Classes are grouped by achievement rather than age, so students learn at their own pace.
  • Caring, Dedicated Faculty Our dedicated teachers work diligently with students and take the extra time as needed to help each one succeed. They teach students, not just lessons.
  • College Preparation All of our students go to college. Southwestern prepares you— not simply to be accepted into college, but to excel there. Our students develop solid study habits, time management and self-discipline.
  • ESL Program We offer an intensive, three-level program to teach English as a Second Language, with some transitional classes in different subjects. Once students pass all three levels, they enter our mainstream classes.
  • Postgraduate Year If you need more time after graduation to advance your skills to the university level, Southwestern offers a customized Postgraduate year.

Overview

Southwestern Academy is a nonprofit, coeducational college preparatory school for grades 6-12, with two campuses—one in San Marino, California and the other in Rimrock, Arizona, United States. The school is accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges). The school offers boarding and day enrollment for 145 students for grades 6-12 in San Marino and 40 students for grades 9-12 at the Rimrock campus. A year of postgraduate studies is offered at both campuses. Students can transfer between the two campuses. The school was founded in 1924 by Maurice Veronda, father of the current headmaster, Kenneth Veronda.

Academics

The San Marino Campus occupies 8 acres (32,000 m2) in a residential community adjoining Pasadena and is ten miles (16 km) from downtown Los Angeles. The Beaver Creek Campus covers 180 acres (0.73 km2), twelve miles (19 km) southeast of Sedona and 40 miles (64 km) south of Flagstaff, Arizona. Students at both campuses follow the same college-preparatory curriculum and take advantage of their surrounding attractions for both studies and free-time activities.

Half of the school's enrollment is international, and the other half is from around the United States. All graduates go to a variety of American universities and community colleges.
