Are you a Sisu sister?

At Sisu Academy, both students and teachers encourage one another to be better than they ever thought possible. Your choice and voice matter, and you'll learn things that are relevant to you. We are currently accepting student inquires from young women in the San Diego community in 8th grade who want to help us co-design our program. 

Follow your passions

Imagine learning something and applying it immediately in your daily life or in your community. Imagine being so engaged in a project that you don't even realize you're learning core fundamentals that will prepare you for an exciting and successful future. The learning at Sisu Academy is driven by your interest, community-based projects, life skills, and discovering your entrepreneurial spirit.

Flexible learning environment

We provide flexible classroom environments that cater to your learning needs and style. Teachers don't stand in the front of the classroom and lecture all time; students have a mix of one-on-one time, online learning, classroom instructions, making labs, and outdoor education. ​When we say "open-walled," we mean it. At Sisu your learning is not bound by the typical school day or by the physical walls. We believe learning can happen anytime, anywhere.    

Ready to Apply?

You are the reason we do this. We are a school that helps you discover your passions and strengths, enables you to learn by having fun, and creates a strong community of young women who embody the essence of Sisu. If you would like someone from the Sisu team to contact you about applying, please fill out the form below.
