SOUTHWESTERN ACADEMY
San Marino, California | Founded in 1924

CURRICULUM

High school classes (grades 9-12) are arranged according to each student’s background. Most classes are offered each year; a few only on alternate terms. Other classes can be developed when needed. All course work meets University of California entrance requirements.

Each student is assigned a faculty member as an advisor. This teacher helps students plan their schedules, maintains a record of progress towards graduation requirements, and generally oversees the academic performance of his/her students through frequent meetings.
