Midland School was founded in 1932 to foster in young people a strong, lively intellect and impeccable character. The school's founder believed that the essentials of a good education-a student, a teacher, and an idea-are best realized in a small, rural community that relies on the work of its members to meet its basic needs. We offer a superb college perparatory curriculum taught in small classrooms, with a student to teacher ratio of 6:1. Furthermore, Midland's tradition of simplicity, self-reliance, and distinguishing between needs and wants continues to be the cornerstone of our community. It is far more than a college preparatory school; it is a uniquely enriching experience that prepares our students for the challenges of life.

The school is located on a 2,860-acre working ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley, 35 miles north of Santa Barbara. Put simply, it is a spectacular location that provides a host of opportunities, including hiking, organic farming, horseback riding, camping, and the unparalleled joy of exploring nature.
