Secular Private Schools in Orange County, California

A+ Ability Plus K-8 School 
Kindergarten through 8th Grade. "Ability Plus is a Private School that teaches from the viewpoint that the data being taught is for students to use in life, not just to memorize and pass a test. Getting marks of 'A' is a useless action unless the student can then apply what was studied to improve his life or the lives of others. At Ability Plus we expect and maintain a high standard of achievement from our students in all the basics such as reading, writing, math, phonics, history, science and the arts. Each student is given an individualized program that aligns with the childís own educational and personal goals. Their interests are fostered and they are taught how to become responsible and actively involved in their education, thus making sure they do succeed. Because of our high standards, children who transfer from other schools to our school are given a thorough, individual analysis and program which addresses any and all areas of their education that may have been missed or might need to be filled in. At Ability Plus, the students master their subjects 100% before moving on to a higher level. When students are held to that standard, their overall progress is faster because they donít have confusions from their earlier studies."  Tustin
Arborland PK-6 Montessori Children's Academy 
"It is our belief that each child is a unique individual with his own special needs and background, and should be recognized as someone special. In order for the child to grow and learn, he must first feel safe, accepted, and competent in an environment that is encouraging, nurturing, supportive and challenging. Our Goals and Objectives Our main objective is to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment which will help the child develop within himself the foundational habits, attitudes, skills and ideas which are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning. Our goals for the child are: to develop a positive attitude toward school and learning. to develop a sense of high self-esteem. to establish a habit of concentration for lifelong study skills. to develop and foster curiosity. to acquire the basic skills necessary for a lifetime of learning. to develop habits of initiative and persistence. to foster inner discipline and a sense of order. to develop socially acceptable behavior. to develop the child's innate, ultimate potential through high self-expectation."  Fullerton
Berkeley Private PK-6 School 
"Berkeley is a small, non-sectarian private school. Our basic premise is that a comfortable, structured atmosphere, in which the child is valued and respected as an individual, is essential to a successful learning experience. Our goals for each student include not only the acquisition of strong basic academic skills, but a firm self-image, independent study habits, and a sense of responsibility. We recognize that by the time a child comes to school, his/her education is already in progress, no matter what the age of the child. The parents have been the child's first teachers, and will continue to be the most influential force in the child's life. It is the responsibility of our school to help the child to integrate his/her new learning experiences in the school environment with the values that are of importance to the child's family."  Fullerton
The Brighten School & Arts Academy 
K-12 "In Summer of 1997, 4 longtime educators dreamed of creating a school in Orange, California where students could focus on learning subjects that had direct bearing on what they wanted to achieve in life. Future architects would be exposed to a wide variety of architecture, artists would learn math skills that related to producing works of art, jet pilots would be encouraged to talk to people in their chosen fields, and so on. All wold be given the opportunity to "Learn How to Learn" and to develop valuable research skills to expand their understanding about life. Students would learn how to think, rather than cram for tests. The Arts would be important, as would Athletics. Manners, Morals and respect for the rights and religions of others would be emphasized. Learning would be an adventure. School would be something to be anticipated with excitement, and the curriculum would exceed the requirements of the State of California. That dream became The Brighten School & Arts Academy, and grew from 12 students in a single room in the Super Sports Complex in 1997 to approximately 100 students (and counting). By September of 2005, larger quarters were needed, and Brighten moved to its new location north of East Chapman in Orange. Come to Brighten to help your student achieve real Study Skills, Learning Strategies, Study Tips and Learning Techniques. We also have a variety of Educational Books and Study Courses for all ages."  Orange

VanDamme Elementary & Jr. High Academy 
"Education, in our view, is the systematic training of the minds of children. This requires the right presentation of the right material over a period of many years. A proper curriculum supplies each student with the essential content of knowledge, and teaches him to be a logical thinker. The result is a mature adult who knows what he thinks and can think on his own. To achieve this result, the curriculum must be presented in a specific way. At our school, each subject is taught in a careful, step-by-step manner that ensures the child will advance with full understanding. Students are taught to make connections within and between subjects--and also between school and life. Our teachers motivate the students, by showing them the importance of the knowledge they are working to acquire. Every child is challenged to achieve, and is allowed to progress at his own pace. The proper content taught by the right method engenders real enthusiasm for learning."  Laguna Hills
