Individual attention is at the core of our academic program. For this reason classes are small – twelve students is the average size – and opportunities for students to meet individually with their teachers are built into the daily schedule.

The goal of the Upper School is to balance breadth of exposure with in-depth pursuit of personal interests. Typically, students take five year-long courses and round out their program by fulfilling requisite classes in the arts, public speaking, and human development, and selecting from a rich array of elective choices. Laguna students pursue a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. When they graduate, they meet or exceed all University of California course requirements.
