The Grauer School, one of San Diego’s premier prep schools, was founded in 1991 by Dr. Stuart Grauer to give teens a voice. Our students have matriculated to the nation’s finest colleges and universities. Our campus and diverse programs accommodate approximately 150 students in grades seven through 12.

Students spend their days in a Socratic environment on our green, six-acre campus in Encinitas, CA. We want our students to try classes for fun, make mistakes, follow a passion, and do things that they are drawn to rather than plotting out a preordained or controlled path. We believe they will achieve more enduring outcomes and passions in this way, develop values like personal motivation, freedom, and courage.
