    History

    Southwestern Academy was founded in San Marino on April 7, 1924, by Maurice Veronda, who personally directed its growth until his death in 1961. His philosophies and efforts resulted in much international recognition of his name and of the school as a special, successful place for students wanting to reach higher personal goals.

    Southwestern continues as a non-profit educational corporation under a Board of Trustees. Kenneth Veronda has been headmaster since his father's death.

    The school's name recognizes the unique spirit of the Southwestern United States, and the double-arrow design of the logo commemorates Indian villages that were located along the streams at both our California and Arizona campuses before European settlement.

    The San Marino Campus is part of an original Spanish grant later legalized by Abraham Lincoln. The old rancho had been planted in orange and avocado trees when Southwestern opened in 1924. Pioneer Hall, the original building, was the 中国福利彩票app靠谱吗 of California governor George Stoneman.

    The Beaver Creek Ranch Campus was added in 1963, as San Marino's elegant 中国福利彩票app靠谱吗s began to surround the California campus and replace outdoor activities with citified opportunities. Located in the heart of Yavapai Apache cowboy country, Beaver Creek was 中国福利彩票app靠谱吗steaded under a grant from Theodore Roosevelt, then became an elegant hunting resort before Southwestern's boys and girls came to enjoy the spectacular setting.

    Southwestern Academy's seventy-seven year heritage includes a unique spirit that permeates the Academy’s trustees, staff, students, alumni, and friends, to work “for the highest good”, as stated in the motto of the school, pro summo bono
