Welcome to Sonoma Academy!

We are delighted that you are thinking about joining our vibrant, joyful, and inclusive community. Our students are genuinely excited to come to school and our parents express the wish that they could come to school here too! We believe that the best way to get to know us is to come visit and find out for yourself how fun and engaging high school can be.

We seek students who will become active, engaged, caring members of our community of learners. While we do not set minimum standards for admission, students are selected for admission on the basis of academic aptitude, engagement with school and community, and potential to be a good fit with Sonoma Academy’s mission and community focus. We are interested in getting to know each candidate as a whole person.

We encourage students of every race, ethnicity, nationality, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, physical ability, religion, and political affiliation to apply. We do not discriminate in on the basis of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, age, or any other characteristic protected by law.

If you are serious about applying to SA, please register to attend an Open House (the whole family is welcome) and a Visit Day (for 8th grade and transfer students only). In the meantime, explore our website and join our community on Facebook and Instagram to learn more about us and to get a view into our weekly school life.
