The Program

Mission Statement: The mission of Balboa City School is to inspire students who desire intellectual stimulation, academic achievement, and creative avenues of expression in order to contribute as meaningful members of a diverse global community.

Balboa City School (BCS) is an accredited, K-12 private school in San Diego offering college preparatory curriculum in smaller classes. For new students, school rapidly becomes an experience they actually look forward to. Rules, expectations, and lessons are well  communicated to students and parents. We create positive learning experiences that encourage students to actively engage with the curriculum and work towards mastery of academic goals.

Upon entrance to the campus, students will discover a well-appointed media lab where they can make video games, write music, develop their artistic talents, and learn advanced programming.

Teacher and Student in Robots ClassStudents select one of many exciting “majors” from within their preferred areas of concentration: STEM, liberal arts, and business. Art and music classes are also important components of our students’ academic coursework. Writing classes are designed to include interesting and enjoyable exercises that will help students tackle any type of writing task they may encounter in high school and beyond.

It has been our experience that given the right motivation and environment, our students can achieve academic success well beyond traditional expectations.
