Transforming education requires creativity and collaboration

A flexible and innovative educational ecosystem
Every child is unique with different needs and gifts. That's why, instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, Da Vinci has created different school models so students and families can choose the type of school that's the best fit for them. Whether you're looking for on-campus or hybrid learning options, our students find life at Da Vinci to be a place of profound personal and intellectual growth.

A seamless pathway of lifelong learning
We seek to create a seamless pathway of lifelong learning from TK through college and beyond, as students transition into and through college and gainful employment. Our aim is to shepherd students into happy, purposeful and upwardly-mobile adults.

We serve as a learning laboratory
Da Vinci has earned a global reputation for reimagining schools for the 21st century with more than 3,000 educators from six continents visiting Da Vinci since our inception. To meet the growing demand from educators seeking to learn more about our school models, we launched Da Vinci Institute for adult educators to gain access to our best practices, resources, and training. Our yearly Transforming Learning Conference and other professional learning opportunities provide training for educators interested in learning redesign or whole school transformation. Our ultimate goal: equitably prepare all students to thrive in a diverse and changing world.

An affordable pathway to degree completion
Just 11% of low income students graduate college. Most leave college with debt and no degree. At Da Vinci, we strive to create affordable, flexible pathways leading to AA or Bachelor's degree completion through Da Vinci Connect High School and Da Vinci Extension, two post-secondary college and career programs in partnership with El Camino College, UCLA Extension, and Southern New Hampshire University. Students can get a jump start on college by earning a two- or four-year college degree while in high school, for free!

Diversity, equity and inclusion
Da Vinci Schools is dedicated to fostering inclusive learning environments that prioritize educational equity for all students. We have an organization-wide commitment to closing opportunity and skills gaps and creating spaces in our organization for diverse voices to be heard, especially those of our students.
