Vibrant campus and student life

The palm-lined campus in the heart of Southern California offers students from around the world the chance to enjoy the laid back, free-spirited culture that the West Coast of the US is known for while they receive an exceptional education and become friends with classmates from around the world.

With top-of-the-line classrooms and labs, amazing natural surroundings and on-campus sports facilities, everything you need to thrive is absolutely within reach. Theater students step into the spotlight in our beautiful auditorium. Science labs are stocked with state-of-the-art equipment and welcoming art studios not only enrich your classes, but host art clubs after school. Complete your school day with a bit of physical activity in the gym or pool, dance studio or basketball courts, or get some fresh air by going for a hike in the nearby mountains. 

The campus is monitored 24/7 by security and support staff. In the on-campus residences, you will live in a modern space with stylish interior design that sparks creativity and fosters a feeling of togetherness. The on-campus dining hall offers nutritious and balanced meals so you eat and feel healthy every day. Most importantly, the student residences as much as the classrooms are safe and comfortable, ideal for learning, growing and for connecting with your peers.
