    Qualia: The School For Deeper Learning


    Schools - Private

    About Us

    A Malibu-adjacent, WASC-accredited college preparatory private school for grades 4-12, specializing in deep inquiry and passion-based learning.

    At Qualia we embrace students’ diverse interests, supporting them to excel at their own pace without limitations. For advanced learners, we offer inquiry-driven honors classes, an advanced level STEM program, a unique Symposium program, a senior honors thesis program, a 12th-year Quest Program, and the opportunity to take college courses for credit. Excellence at Qualia means losing yourself in a topic or idea, entering into a focused state of intellectual “flow” while sharing your uncontainable enthusiasm with others. Close mentoring by our faculty, themselves passionate life-long scholars and creators, promotes deep understanding and personalizes learning. For a budding scholar, the Qualia experience provides an antidote and counterpoint to the lecture-and-test, smile-and-endure “Race to Nowhere” embodied by other elite programs.
