A message from our Executive Director, Zachary C. Jones


At Balboa City School, we embrace the differences, gifts, and talents of students from around the world. We want to encourage and stimulate the various lights that shine so brightly in each of our young people today.

Nestled in the heart of beautiful San Diego, you will find a thriving intellectual and academic environment for students from kindergarten through high school. Our students are passionate, creative, and ambitious, and they express this in a multitude of positive and inspirational ways. Balboa City School provides our students with many avenues to stimulate their diverse interests and thus build a bridge to future achievement.

Our unique Majors Program offers students the opportunity to maximize their potential and explore prospective careers. Comprehensive learning and language supports enable students to break down cultural and social barriers, creating a special family-type bond that is difficult to find elsewhere. Our small learning environment embraces students who may learn differently while also challenging those who are gifted high achievers.

Balboa City School is a special place that will grab your heart and inspire your mind. We hope that you will join us in this journey to become part of a wonderful global learning community.
