  • The Grauer School has been the North County's premier, independent, college preparatory institution for twenty three years and the region's only UNESCO-affiliated school.
  • The school's mission is to promote and maintain an environment of academic excellence, to help students develop as caring and compassionate individuals, and to build awareness of their responsibilities to both local and global society.
  • To accomplish this, we seek students who are able and ready to perform in a college preparatory environment, engage actively with both peers and mentors, and embrace leadership and service opportunities.
  • The Grauer School focuses on balancing academic rigor with expeditionary learning and Socratic teaching.
