Hybrid Program

In addition to the in-person and virtual programs, we offer a hybrid program for families who live outside of Orange County and for whom getting to campus more than a small number of days per week is a significant logistical challenge.

The hybrid program allows students to spend some time in each of the two worlds. While the in-person program and virtual program have some overlap in students and staff, for the most part they should be thought of as separate “campuses” with separate student bodies. Therefore the experience of a hybrid student is like being enrolled in two different schools at once. We consider this situation to be non-ideal, so we will only accept an application to the hybrid program if we see that it is really needed.

We offer the following hybrid schedules:

  • 3 days in-person (T/W/Th), 2 days virtual (M/F)
  • 2 days in-person (T/W), 3 days virtual (M/Th/F)
  • 1 day in-person (T), 4 days virtual (M/W/Th/F)

Families wanting 4 days on campus should enroll in the pure in-person program, since attendance on Fridays is optional in that program.

Elements of the hybrid program

Just like in the virtual program, all hybrid students will have a staff adviser who they will meet with once a week. They will also have daily “house meetings” on each of their virtual days.

Hybrid students are also required to attend a minimum number of sponsored activities depending on their number of virtual days:

  • 2-3 virtual days: 2 activities/week
  • 4 virtual days: 3 activities/week
