Mission Viejo

Imagine a school built around your way of learning, your lifestyle and your goals…

Mission Viejo Campus

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, like home. Teachers that listen to you and curtail 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, 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.

At our flagship campus in Mission Viejo, students find a comfortable place to learn, study and hang out with friends. Our campus, located near the Mission Viejo Mall off of Crown Valley Parkway,  is convenient and accessible.

Commons Aren’t So Common

The campus common area includes a wall painted with “Idea paint” whhigh_school_IS_608ere 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. “The Study” 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 Quiet Study” provides workstations and a computer lab to finish assignments and study for tests. The Quiet 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.

Why Halstrom Works?

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.
