Rolling Hills Prep School History
RHP was established in 1981 as an independent not-for-profit school to prepare young people for success and happiness in college and beyond. Founded initially as the high school division of Rolling Hills Country Day School, the school began teaching in classrooms at Rolling Hills Covenant Church. In 1992, RHP added middle school grades and moved to larger facilities on a campus located in Malaga Cove, remaining there for fourteen years and adding programs in academics, the arts, athletics, and outdoor education.
In 2007, RHP moved to our current campus in San Pedro. Since then, the campus has expanded to fill our fifteen acres and we continue to explore adding to it. Our landscaping has matured, and we have added buildings to house our RHP, Renaissance and REACH academic programs and offerings, student body activities, and Arts spaces.
Rolling Hills Prep boasts a beautiful campus with an open, natural feel. Sports facilities include a football field, soccer field, beach volleyball court, basketball court, and playground. Other signature spots on campus include our Husky event garden, a lush tree corridor, and a meditative Koi pond.
