Escuela Santa Ana
Escuela Santa Ana was established on the grounds of Rancho Santana in 2010 to provide a schooling option for children living in the Ranch. The school has since opened its doors to families in the surrounding communities who share the common goal of desiring a high level international education to their children in a private school setting. The school has grown to include a Lower and Upper School currently serving a range of ages from 5 to 14. Our programs are designed to support students Kindergarten - 12th grades as we continue to grow.
We pride ourselves on being a multilingual school offering a high level, internationally accredited education to students beginning with Kindergarten. Like the small one-room school houses of the past, ESA operates with multi-age classrooms while maintaining small class sizes to offer low student-to-teacher ratios for individualized support. Students at Escuela Santa Ana follow a customized learning program using our multifaceted curricula. We use a combination of online, in print, hands-on, experience based curricula. Being so small allows us to provide a truly responsive schooling experience where teachers serve as guides for student centered learning.
Students participate in enrichment courses 5 days a week that support our integrated studies on healthy mind & body, environmental stewardship, and reading. Throughout the year students take courses in art, music, dance, karate, theater, yoga, culture, community collaboration, environmental stewardship, cooking, handcrafts, mountain biking, PE and more. There is a high value placed on developing the whole child by allowing them to try new things, learn social-emotional skills and hone practical life skills.
