Description

Midland School, located on a 2,860-acre ranch at the edge of the Los Padres National Forest, has been the leader of place-based and experiential college preparatory education since 1932. Everything we do—from the courses we choose to teach to how we maintain our campus to the way we feed ourselves—originates from an intentional curriculum that focuses not only on college preparatory classes, but also on leadership, community, and stewardship. Our scale empowers students with authentic leadership opportunities, provides highly personalized learning, and inspires the pursuit of intellectual passions. At Midland, thirty-eight percent of our students identify as students of color, over half receive generous financial aid to attend, and the depth of our boarding experience facilitates both top-tier college admissions and future success.

Unique Characteristics

Midland’s 2,860 acre campus affords students endless opportunities to explore both in class and during their free time. As a part of the place-based science curriculum, students explore the property, gaining fluency in the topography, underlying geology, soil chemistry, flora, fauna, and climate of Midland’s campus.

Midland’s Pet Policy means students can bring their pet to school with them (dog, cat, horse).
