COVID-19/Coronavirus Information

The Grauer School campus has reopened! We are offering both on-campus and hybrid teaching and learning, all in our signature expeditionary style. Our campus safety remains on the front end of all concerns. Our 14 outdoor classrooms are bathed in Pacific breezes, and these are complimented by an array of disinfection and air quality protocols and products, making Grauer truly state-of-the-art. We meet and characteristically exceed health regulations from the San Diego Board of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). If you have any questions, refer to our "Coronavirus Resources" webpage or contact the Grauer office at info@grauerschool.com or (760) 944-6777.

Welcome to The Grauer School!

As a premier private school in San Diego, we are steadfastly dedicated to preparing tomorrow’s leaders for roles in our global community. The Grauer School was founded in 1991 by Dr. Stuart Grauer to provide teens with an environment to develop their own empowered voices. Our green, six-acre campus in Encinitas, California offers diverse programs accommodating approximately 150 students in grades seven through 12.

Our Socratic learning environment allows our students to stand on their own two feet while developing critical thinking skills necessary to meet the unique challenges of a rapidly changing society and world. Our curriculum allows students the flexibility to take classes for fun, learn how to make mistakes, become confident pursuing their passions, and ultimately follow their hearts doing things they are drawn to, rather than plotting out preordained or controlled paths they have little or no control over.

At the Grauer School, we believe our students achieve more enduring outcomes by cultivating independent thinking faculties necessary for self-empowerment, which includes forming core values like personal motivation, freedom, and courage. Our innovative curriculum has resulted in many students matriculating to the nation’s finest colleges and universities. As an inclusive private school in San Diego committed to celebrating diversity in all forms, we welcome students of many cultural and social backgrounds throughout the United States and across the globe.
