A K-8 Private School Helping Your Child Reach Their Full Potential

Since our founding as an independent school in 1959, Barnhart has been providing a meaningful educational experience for children in the greater-Pasadena area and the surrounding San Gabriel Valley to ensure we deliver our mission - We Grow Difference-Makers! Barnhart continues to offer our students balanced academic excellence within a welcoming and diverse community. We recognize that our children all have unique gifts and talents, and we create an environment in which they can thrive academically as well as socially and emotionally. Our exceptional academic program ensures that our children learn in a respectful and caring atmosphere so that they develop into the difference-makers our world so desperately needs. We believe that the character of our students, who they are as humans, is critical in the journey to becoming successful adults, and we're proud to be partners with our families along the way. 

Our private school programs are designed to foster a love of learning and to prepare our students to succeed not just in the classroom, but in the real world. When you enroll your child at Barnhart, they're granted the benefit of small class sizes and hands-on learning experiences. We maintain a 15 to 1 student teacher ratio, so our teachers can get to know each child individually and create engaging lesson plans tailored to meet each child's unique learning style.

At Barnhart, we believe that the values we instill are just as important as the curriculum we teach. Our school is one that encourages students to develop independence and responsibility so they are equipped to forge their own paths through high school and beyond.
