The philosophy of Ojai Valley School is contained in the motto "Integer Vitae," meaning wholeness of life, symmetry of life, soundness of life, and, therefore, poise and strength of life. To accommodate this school philosophy, every effort is made to create an atmosphere for students and faculty that is conducive to learning and growing through the framework of a warm family environment. Guided by this stated philosophy, Ojai Valley School has, as its goals and objectives, the development of each student's character. Ojai Valley School students are presented with a wide variety of experiences through college and university preparatory studies, campus life, field trips, student activities, athletic programs, outdoor education and camping. These activities allow students to explore the extent of their interests and abilities, to know themselves, and to develop an attitude of appreciation and respect. Ojai Valley School students are exposed to a well balanced program, both academic and social, with consistent standards set for each discipline and activity. Towards the development of character, students are given responsibilities that relate to their personal lives and to the school community. With support and guidance from faculty, students begin to develop the knowledge and strength needed to make sound judgments.
