Message from the Director

For generations, parents have sought a better education for their children. At The Learning Castle and La Cañada Preparatory, we will not betray your trust. We deliver outstanding results.

  • The Learning Castle provides all of the courses of study required for four year olds through 3rd grade by the State of California, expanding upon and exceeding those guidelines.
  • La Cañada Preparatory provides all of the courses of study required for grades 4th through 8th by the State of California, expanding upon and exceeding those guidelines.
  • Our physical education program includes tennis instruction from a former professional player as well as group sports.
  • We also offer dance, music, foreign languages, and computer classes, as well as a fine arts program.
  • Students are on individual education programs and have personal, class, and grade objectives.
  • We have developed a method of teaching phonics and reading through writing. Our method has been so successful that we have developed a series of worksheets to be published in the near future.
  • We can accommodate students with certain special needs, but our program is specifically designed to assist students at and above their grade levels to learn at an accelerated pace.

With 25 years of teaching experience, nominated for “Teacher of the Year” in Marin County, and given a congressional commendation, I contend that teaching is an art.
