TESLA Country Day School

Orange County and San Diego County need an independent preschool through fifth grade school with advanced instructional pedagogy for young inquisitive learners. There is a gap in the educational services for a rigorous, yet creatively balanced, independent education for kindergarten through fifth grade. The lack of independent education options is problematic. This is evidenced through focus groups with parents from local play-groups, HOA communities, and general feedback from parents.

TESLA Country Day will have a balanced focus on STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), personal and global well-being, physical movement and expression, art, world languages, service-learning, and creativity.

Nikola Tesla had hundreds of patents registered in his name for his lifelong work with electricity. His inventions and discoveries, particularly in the late 1800s, are the basis for much of our modern lifestyle. His innovative work, fueled by human curiosity and science, influences our life today. Much like Nikola Tesla’s dedication to alternating currents and wireless transmission shaped our world today, TESLA Country Day is dedicated to advancing inquisitive learners understanding of technology, engineering, science, leadership, and art. Thus contributing to the future advancement and preservation of innovation, entrepreneurship, and global well-being.

I founded this school for my daughter and for every other parent and curious child looking for a school that ignites creativity, balances technology and art, while building the personal strengths that our future leaders will require for success in the 21st century and in life. This school is for our community and for the children that will grow up to make decisions that influence the way in which we live, communicate, and share a planet that supports us all.
