We are the 2nd Highest Rated Private High School in the Sacramento Area.



At Almondale Academy, each student is viewed as unique; in their aspirations and skills, and is fostered in their endeavors.

Research indicates that the level of success in high school directly correlates with the degree students feel connected to their school. 

Upon enrollment, each student is tested, interviewed, and counseled for their individualized high school academic program. Our experiential curriculum invigorates students’ interests and sharpens their skills, which is crucial at this stage in human development. All our courses are college prep, however, we also offer online accredited A-G courses.  Teachers are available for support and tutoring for those courses.  

In a time where high school and college preparation are so very stressful,

“We offer an education without the stress – unlike other high schools” asserts principal Nola Bardin, “Many parents and students compliment us on our methods of learning without anxiety. Current high school students made the switch to Almondale for just this reason.”

An Almondale student’s career path is developed through academics and internships in their field of interest. College courses also may be taken in their junior and senior years, fulfilling both high school and college graduation requirements. We work with both American River College & Sierra College Education Enrichment programs to ease into college life. 

Almondale Academy offers core classes as well as electives in the arts that prepare them for the demands of life and fulfills the requirements for all three college institutions: Community College, CSU, and UC. We also work with struggling students where it is best to fulfill the California State High School Graduation Requirements. Students may graduate early if these requirements are fulfilled.
