Head of Schools Welcome
Welcome to Rolling Hills Prep, REACH and Renaissance Schools! As you can tell by our name, we are three schools in one learning community with a focus on providing the right fit education for our students. At our schools we are redefining the “prep school” experience. Our community is based on replacing pressure with personal and academic empowerment. We change mindsets from, “I can’t learn that” to “I haven’t learned that yet.” Our educational environment is small by design, it promotes intellectual bravery and allows us to connect with each student on a deeper level. We are intently focused on identifying the unique potential in every student and supporting them in realizing the full range of their talents.We take pride in embracing elements of individualized learning that empower and support a broad range of students from first grade to twelfth grade.
Our “small by design” environment allows us to instill self- advocacy in our students, as well as foster an environment where it is safe to work outside of one’s comfort zone. Two of our schools specialize in educating neurodiverse students and setting them up for success not only in the classroom but also outside of the school environment. We offer programs and curriculum that are geared towards helping these students grow as diverse learners and members of the community. In addition, we are a college preparatory school that focuses on the “right fit” colleges for all of our graduates. With the guidance of our senior advisors and college counselors, students receive support starting in ninth grade through the college application process and beyond.
For 42 years since the school was founded in 1981, we have continued to uphold the Four Pillars of Disciplined Minds, Sound Character, Healthy Bodies, and Creative Spirits. Embedded into every aspect of our school, we aspire for each student that steps onto our campus to live out these learning expectations. If our vision interests and inspires you, I encourage you and your family to visit our school and experience the liveliness that make up Rolling Hills Prep, REACH and Renaissance Schools. Whether you are a current member of our community or a prospective family looking for a new school, I look forward to getting to know you and building ties within our schools and local communities.
