SAN MATEO CAMPUS |
Just south of San Francisco and off the 101 freeway, our campus is directly accessible to Burlingame, Foster City, Belmont and Hillsborough.
Imagine a school built around your way of learning, your lifestyle and your goals…
A place where you fit in, you can excel, create lasting friendships and make your dreams come true. A school that feels uniquely your own, like family or like home. Teachers that listen to you and tailor lesson plans to the way you learn best, at a pace that makes you successful. A school that works with your schedule, around your activities, and at times that are most conducive for you to learn at your best. A school that is built for you and around you; that’s Halstrom Academy.
At Halstrom, our middle school and high school students are regular kids and each student is unique in their own way. Some struggle with academia, learning challenges or social anxiety, while some are athletes and actors who find the flexible scheduling options beneficial, and some are wanting accelerated learning that they are not finding in the traditional classroom… but all value and benefit from the 1:1 instruction so they can learn to their capacity and pace.
|Why Halstrom Works?|
Classrooms consist of only one student and one teacher. At Halstrom you will benefit from an alternative quality education and personalized one-to-one instruction that is tailored to your personal needs, educational goals and learning styles. It is important that each student has content mastery and that you learn at your pace. This allows for a personalized education for each student.
At Halstrom, our middle school and high school programs offer you the unique opportunity to choose the class times, course load, and pace that best accommodate your needs inside and outside of school. This allows our students to achieve success both inside and outside the classroom and schedule around their optimum learning times.
Halstrom’s small environment and supportive community gives you a place where you feel safe and are able to discover the power of your own potential. Each student is unique and Halstrom will work with each student to achieve success.
Commons Aren’t So Common|
The campus common area includes a wall painted with "Idea paint" where students can use markers to be creative, think visually, and share ideas with one another. You don't find that in most public or private schools.
Because the majority of student work is done outside the classroom, but not at home, Halstrom Academy provides designated spaces that students can call their own. "HangOut" offers a relaxing atmosphere to socialize with friends, watch TV, play music and work on group projects. It's a perfect place for those who desire a sense of community. "The Study" provides workstations and a computer lab to finish assignments and study for tests. "The Study" is staffed with a tutor to help students master the content outside of the classroom. This frees the student up from loads of homework and parents don't have to struggle with the often burdensome and confusing studies sent home. At our private 1:1 instructional campus, we have a leadership club, yearbook club, numerous field trips and volunteer opportunities where our students enjoy school life outside of the classroom.
Halstrom offers the opportunity for students to enroll in college courses while still in high school in order for them to get ahead and earn both high school and college credits at the same time. This is different than AP courses and students could potentially graduate college in as little as 3 years.
