Griffinwood Academy is the school where children love to learn. Offering a strong curriculum, practical education and in a positive learning environment, we prepare students for the life-long pursuit of greater knowledge, ability and success.


Welcome to Griffinwood Academy!

Located in the heart of Orange County, off the Interstate 5 and accessible from the 22, 55 and 57 freeways, we are a non-profit private school, serving students from Early Entrance Kindergarten through Elementary and Middle School.

Our curriculum is rooted in the basics of Reading, Writing and Arithmetic, complemented by inclusive programs in the Arts, Research, Science and Technology – all designed to see students succeed in school and in life.

Going beyond old-school conventions, we offer Tailor-Made Academic Programs, maintain an A+ Passing Standard, and not only teach students what subjects they need to learn for grade requirements, but also how to learn any subject they choose, now and for the future.

You can learn more about our educational philosophy and curriculum below.

OMG! My 7 year old son came home from school yesterday telling me he is learning how to code on the computer! I'm like say what? At age 7? He woke up today again telling me how much he likes this computer coding thing. Is this normal at his age?

I’ve been teaching for 8 years in both public and private schools, including one of the oldest and most prestigious private schools in Orange County. In my experience, nothing comes close to Griffinwood. The results I’ve seen here are why I decided to become a teacher.

Before I found Griffinwood, I’d tried 5 different Kindergartens for my son, but none seemed to fit. Within his first month here, Johnathan read his very first book. He’s now learning at a pace I’ve never seen before. He’s excited to attend school and when I pick him up, he usually asks if he can stay longer. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for.

As for those “fast” students who might have felt held back in another setting, at Griffinwood Academy we encourage gifted students to excel.

Because the last thing one should do with a child who’s intelligent and bright, eager to learn and advance, is to discourage them with unnecessary restraints.

We recognize every child is unique, with their own strengths and skills.

That’s why, at Griffinwood Academy, we tailor education to the individual student, and not the other way around.
