Principal's Message



    Welcome to
    Lorin Griset Academy

    Lorin Griset Academy enjoys a rich history of academic success that is the result of a collegial partnership among the school staff, parents, community members and the schools of Santa Ana Unified School District.

    Together, we work as a team to provide opportunities and experiences for all of our students. We are a school of learning options, with approximately 368 students, 17 teachers, 9 support staff members, and our principal. We offer students the opportunity to complete their high school requirements in a personalized setting with individualized opportunities in a smaller learning environment.

    We nurture mutual respect and guide each student to respect themselves, adults, peers, and their community. We challenge every student to do their best, be their best, and exceed their potential. Students soon discover that the Lorin Griset experience is as unique as they are

    Lorin Griset Academy’s staff strives to offer an academically rigorous learning environment, to engage each student by linking the curriculum to previous knowledge and experiences, and to promote and encourage further exploration of new ideas. Parents, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play an important role in engaging our children to become active learners. It is our genuine desire to provide ever increasing opportunities for our students to acquire the skills of empowered citizens in a vastly changing society. We pride ourselves in creating an individualized graduation plan for each student while affording students the option of returning to their comprehensive high school or graduating from Lorin Griset Academy, all the while preparing them to be ready for college and/or career pursuits.

    The wonderful Lorin Griset Academy staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and invite you to explore the unique opportunities provided at Lorin Griset Academy. We are committed to the goal of every student being valued,challenged, successful and graduating from Lorin Griset Academy ready for the challenges of college and a career.
