Midland is a small coeducational college preparatory boarding high school located on 2,860-acres in California’s Santa Ynez Valley.
Midland School provides a unique college preparatory boarding school experience to a diverse student body. Through study and work, it teaches the value of a lifetime of learning, self-reliance, simplicity, responsibility to community and the environment, and love for the outdoors.
The Midland program merges exceptional college preparation with innovative experiential learning. With extraordinary resources at hand — 2,860 acres in Santa Barbara County, a 90-year-old culture of responsibility to community and environment, and a deeply committed faculty — we develop personal agency in our students. Midland cultivates the belief that it matters what we do, and we actively engage students in their high school journey both within and outside the classroom.
