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.

The Grauer School celebrates its roots each November with a luncheon that honors Grandparents and Grandfriends and pays tribute to the founding of our school. This year's Grandfriends Luncheon will take place on Friday, November 16 from 11:30am to 2:00pm. Invite your loved ones for a program of student music performances and lunch, followed by student-led tours of campus and a photo opportunity. Please RSVP with a count of how many guests will be attending, because your RSVP helps us plan our lunch menu. Grauer families can RSVP for your loved ones, or you can copy and forward this link to them so they can RSVP themselves. Faculty Lead: Clayton Trosclair
