BESANT HILL

Established in 1946 and situated on 520 acres in the resort town of Ojai, California, our residential community offers a rigorous college preparatory curriculum with a cornerstone of creative expression and divergent thinking for grades 9-12 and PG. Besant Hill School offers over 20 art electives, AP level courses, competitive athletics, travel and experiential education programs, small class sizes, a 4:1 student teacher ratio and a student body of 100 students from 15 foreign countries and 10 states. Our motto of "Aún Aprendo" reflects our belief that life can be lived in its fullest sense through lifelong efforts towards personal development and growth. We believe we are a model for the way education should occur, where students are taught how to think, not what to think, where our land is a laboratory for a sustainable planet, where rules are replaced with values and principles developed by all of us, where the arts are a foundation for our belief that creative expression is as important as reading, writing and arithmetic. We are a school that believes that life isn’t about finding yourself — it’s about creating yourself.
