About Us

Commitment to Excellence

In its brief history Acaciawood has demonstrated a commitment to excellence. The values articulated in the school’s ethos and Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLRs) are reflected in the many awards garnered by our students in academic competitions and the consistently strong scores our students put up on exams such as the SATs, Stanford 9, and other standardized tests. In 2000 the school’s achievements were recognized by a peer review that resulted in the school gaining full accreditation. Perhaps the greatest advertisement for our school is the success of our alumni, many of whom have gone on to successful college careers, some at the most prestigious institutions in the country.

Strong Academic Program and Co-curricular Activities

Our school offers a strong academic program at all levels, plus the opportunity to be involved in a range of co-curricular activities including athletics and various student organizations.

Acaciawood is more than just a school. It is a community of learning and service involving students, faculty, and parents. One of the real strengths of Acaciawood since its inception has been parental involvement, which is reflected in the Parent Support Group.

Our Curriculum

The School operates on a traditional thirty-six week calendar, starting in early August and ending in mid May. We have 6-7 instructional periods per day averaging 45 minutes per period. Including assembly and Homeroom programs, there are a total of 1,037 hours per academic year. The school offers a set curriculum with limited elective choices. The curriculum focuses on core courses and is designed to meet or exceed the University of California A-G requirements for admission and the California State Board of Education Model requirements.
