-- The Grauer School will host an Open House event for prospective students and their parents on Saturday, November 3, 2012, on the campus located at 1500 S. El Camino Real in Encinitas from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Tours will be conducted every 20 minutes and families are encourged to attend to meet with faculty and visit classrooms. The Grauer School is a 6-12 grade college preparatory school that is the regional leader in the small schools movement. The serene campus setting is peaceful and green due to its placement alongside a nature preserve, while having ready access and transportation to major educational resources in San Diego’s North County. The philosophy and curriculum of the school revolve around the concept that close mentoring relationships between students, teachers, and peers allow for the greatest intellectual growth, limitless creativity, and the development of confidence and self-advocacy that are needed to succeed in a high-stakes college environment and beyond.
According to Elizabeth Braymen, Director of Admissions, “At the Open House, visitors will have the opportunity to meet students, teachers, administrators and parents who will be happy to introduce the campus to visitors and explain our academic and extra-curricular programs including athletics, performing arts, robotics, leadership, community service and many other disciplines. We are fulfilling our enrollment capacity annually, however we are always seeking bright minds and brave new talent to foster in the upcoming academic year. Our graduates receive a higher ratio of academic scholarships to colleges and universities of their choice than other schools in the area, so we’re excited to provide newly enrolled students with this opportunity, whether they are transferring from another school mid-stream or joining us from the outset at the 6th grade level.” All of our graduates progress to college and 85% of our graduates receive acceptance to their first choice schools.
The Grauer School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), a member of the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS), and is the only school in the region to be honored as a designated UNESCO school. The school serves as a successful educational model for hundreds of private schools around the world through the Coalition of Small Preparatory Schools (CSPS) established by Founding Head, Dr. Stuart Grauer.
