A forward-looking, academically rigorous college-prep school with a soul, Rolling Hills Preparatory School stands out from other great local public and private schools in one vitally important way: We have designed and implemented a balanced educational formula that prepares students for entry to, and success at, selective colleges and universities without burning them out in the process.

Message from Head of School

When our founders designed Renaissance, they had in mind a school that would become a premier educational setting for bright, college-bound students who learn differently: students who may be succeeding at a certain level in their current schools, but not THRIVING: students whose parents KNOW that there should be something more, something better, to both challenge and support their children. And that’s what we have created and developed at Renaissance. The academic bar is as high as one might expect for a college-prep school, complemented by a level of support customized to each child so that he or she will be equipped for success in college and beyond. We believe that bright students who learn differently can rise to great heights when they become empowered and confident.

Uniquely for such a school, Renaissance shares a campus with a more traditional college-prep school, Rolling Hills Prep. We are two schools making up one vibrant community. In middle school (grades 5-8), the academic programs are largely separate, but students from the two schools interact in athletics, arts, and outdoor education, and at social events. In upper school (grades 9-12) Renaissance students, as they become ready, begin to take some classes alongside Rolling Hills Prep students, still receiving the support they require from Renaissance faculty.

The symbiosis between the two schools, both inside and outside the classrooms, provides a strength and effervescence tangible to all who visit campus. We look forward to you visiting and learning more about the exciting educational opportunities offered by Renaissance School for Arts and Sciences.
