“Welcomed. Accepted. Supported.” These are just a few of the words students use to describe the way they feel when they come to Holden.
WHO ATTENDS HOLDEN?
Holden students are curious, creative, independent, and bright. Many of our students possess significant academic potential that is often left untapped while receiving a mainstream school education.
Our students often need social-emotional support, have learning differences, and thrive in a small, nurturing environment where they receive weekly 1-on-1 counseling. Our teens reside all over the Bay Area (Oakland, Walnut Creek, Antioch, Richmond, and more!)
Our student body is comprised of diverse cultural, social, and economic backgrounds.
WHY DO TEENS (AND THEIR FAMILIES) CHOOSE HOLDEN?
The reasons that families choose Holden are as unique and varied as each family. Most of our families choose us for our:
- Alternative school structure: small class size and close teacher-student relationships
- Caring staff who take the time to understand each student’s unique strengths, interests, and challenges
- Ability to award high school credit for learning experiences that students have both inside and outside of school
- Welcoming, tight-knit community
