Welcome to Laguna Blanca! As you explore our site, you will find demonstrated here Laguna's commitment to our core values of scholarship, character, balance, and community. This commitment ensures that we provide a broad and diverse array of options for our students at every level of the school. We want every opportunity for our students, faculty, and staff to stretch themselves and take on new challenges. This growth occurs because we build our program on a foundation of deep and meaningful personal relationships—
these individual connections allow each of us to find the best in every member of our community. Whether in the classroom, on stage, in the gym, or serving the Santa Barbara community, you will see our students, faculty, and staff modeling our values through their actions.
It is an honor to be part of the rich legacy of this school, with 85 years of history in Hope Ranch and 18 years at our Lower School campus in Montecito. I am confident that you will be drawn to Laguna just as my family has been. Because the human element is so essential to our identity as a school, I hope you understand that our website cannot fully capture life at Laguna Blanca. Please take the time to visit us and see the magic of our school. Thank you for your interest, and I look forward to seeing you!
Rob Hereford, Head of School
