A Small College Prep Boarding School In Ojai, California

Besant Hill School is a small boarding school in California. We honor individuality, critical thinking, creative and artistic passions, global citizenship, and environmental activism. We believe its values, small size, committed faculty and staff, and beautiful location in the Ojai Valley that make Besant Hill School a special place to study.

Besant Hill School isn’t like other boarding prep schools. It’s our intimate environment that allows us to be more than just a school to our students. We foster a culture of caring, learning, and empowerment. After 4 years on our campus, our students go on to do great things in the world, and that’s something we couldn’t be more proud of. The relationships our students build with others while here are priceless. In fact, it’s something that many of our alumni remark as being one of the best parts of boarding with us.

Here you’ll find important information about the application process. You’ll also be able to arrange a visit to our unique boarding school that so many of our students feel is their home away from home. Be sure to look for our key admissions dates and deadlines. Simply contact us with any questions you may have along the way.
