Flintridge Preparatory School is situated at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains in the community of La Cañada Flintridge. The tree-filled campus has environmentally sensitive landscaping and is home to seven dedicated academic buildings, each providing light-filled classrooms and flexible learning spaces with state-of-the art technology.
The two-story Helen and Will Webster Family Science Center is home to the 400 seat Norris Auditorium, the Keck Biology Lab, the Murfey Chemistry Lab, and two other science labs. It is also home to the newly created Center for Student Life.
Just off the bustling Ahmanson Plaza, where our students purchase gourmet meals from the school’s dining service, the two-story Chandramohan Library is an important academic and social hub of the school. It contains meeting rooms, space for individual and group study, and a college counseling suite.
The two-story Randall Performing Arts Center includes seminar classrooms, a dance studio, and music room, as well as the Miller Theater, a black box teaching and performance space.
The school has several art studios that provide all the tools our artists need—pottery wheels, kilns, a dark room, and Macs for video and photo editing projects.
The athletic facilities include the Lowery Swimming Pool, Memorial Athletic Field, and Crawford Family Gymnasium, which houses newly remodeled locker rooms and a professional-grade training center for athletes, as well as the Tom Fry Weight Room.
The three-story Bachmann Collaboration Building, which opened in 2020, houses programs in STEAM, Global Studies, and Leadership. The first floor includes a Makerspace, art studio, and science lab; the second floor has versatile classroom spaces that can be reconfigured for lectures and events, as well as seminar rooms equipped with video conferencing technology; the third floor houses seminar rooms and meeting spaces to host the school’s student government and other student leadership organizations. The space was designed to promote informal and formal conversation and collaboration across every discipline.
