Welcome to Holden High School!

Holden High School is a WASC accredited East Bay Area private non-profit high school committed to providing a unique and alternative approach to education.

Since 1969, Holden has been devoted to developing a fully integrated range of teaching styles to work successfully with a broad range of learners. Holden addresses the academic, creative, community, and social-emotional needs of teenagers in a respectful, accepting, and effective learning environment.  Our small school serves students in grades 9 through 12, with a student-teacher ratio of 5:1 or smaller.  Students come from all over the San Francisco Bay Area and reflect its diversity.

Students graduate from Holden with academic confidence, the ability to advocate for themselves, a strong sense of community, a passion for learning, and clear and attainable plans for their futures.
