Welcome to High Point!

Mr. Stern Head of School

Welcome to High Point Academy, an independent, coeducational kindergarten through 8th grade school, nestled in the beautiful foothills of Pasadena!

Why High Point Academy?

What makes High Point unique? Our mission is dedicated to awakening the joy of learning in each student and inspiring every student to reach his/her fullest potential in a close-knit, nurturing, collaborative, and stimulating community of caring and learning. We share a long-standing, unwavering commitment to provide academic excellence and to develop and nurture the Whole Child (academic, social, emotional, ethical, physical). With an emphasis on the “Whole Child”, students build their minds through strong academic and enrichment programs designed to foster critical thinking and creative problem solving. Their bodies are strengthened through daily physical education, and their social and emotional intelligence is developed through programs that help students understand and connect with each other. Our dedicated and talented faculty provides a strong, challenging, and engaging  curriculum that, in addition to the core academics, includes Spanish or French, vocal and instrumental music, visual arts and design, library, the latest in technology and innovation, and daily physical education.

At High Point, it is and will always be about the students. Every decision and priority is guided by one overarching consideration - "Will this decision/priority further advance High Point's mission of developing the Whole Child, awakening the joy of learning in students, and furthering the pursuit of academic excellence?"

While this website will provide you a snapshot of High Point, I invite you to sign up for a tour and visit our diverse, dynamic, close-knit community. Experience first-hand why High Point’s engaging K-8 curriculum instills self-confidence, good character, and an incredibly strong and vibrant academic foundation.
