    History

    Midland School, located on a 2,860-acre ranch at the edge of the Los Padres Wilderness, has been the leader of place-based college preparatory education since 1932. Everything we do—from the courses we choose to teach to how we maintain our campus to the way we feed ourselves—originates from an intentional curriculum that focuses not only on college preparatory classes, but also on leadership, community, and stewardship. Our scale empowers students with authentic leadership opportunities, provides highly personalized learning, and inspires the pursuit of intellectual passions. At Midland, thirty-eight percent of our students identify as students of color, over half receive generous financial aid to attend, and the depth of our boarding experience facilitates both top-tier college admissions and future success.

      Please share a few thoughts about you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗r experiences with Midland School: At Midland, I learned to chop wood and make a fire to heat my water; how to live in a small community; how to hike for a week with a pack on my back. I received an excellent education, thanks to committed faculty and the low student-teacher ratio. When I got to college, I was ready. Because I had formed close friendships with my teachers in high school, I was not afraid to similarly seek out my college professors, asking them questions.
