Crystal Springs Uplands School is probably best known for a powerful and innovative academic program, a rich array of co-curricular offerings, an expert and dedicated faculty, and graduates who boast an almost embarrassing range of talent achievement. Our facilities also garner plenty of laudatory attention, particularly now that the lush, historic Upper School campus in Hillsborough has been joined by the newly completed, 60,000 square foot, state-of-the-art Middle School campus in nearby Belmont.
Crystal Springs Uplands School is committed to being a diverse and inclusive community. Such community values and celebrates individual differences and ensures that each individual's unique background and perspective can inform and enrich all educational experiences. In seeking to create and sustain a community that reflects the Bay Area's diversity, we provide a dynamic learning environment and strive to prepare students for the world in which they live. Our curriculum exposes students to myriad viewpoints and experiences that challenge and broaden their perspectives. CSUS believes that students, parents/guardians, faculty, staff, administration, and trustees with inclusive perspectives and attitudes make our school a place of respect and compassion. All members belong and thrive.
Crystal Springs Uplands School admits students of any race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate based on race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, national and ethnic origin in administering its educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
At CSUS, we inspire motivated learners to lead meaningful lives in a rapidly changing world. Our intimate, collaborative community encourages students to pursue passions, explore new interests, build confidence, develop compassion, and thrive in an environment of academic excellence.
Crystal Springs Uplands School is known for its small, supportive environment and its big ideas. We encourage independence and community, experimentation and cooperation, intellectual inquiry, and school spirit. We are actively seeking engaged and compassionate students involved in the classroom and in the community students who are athletes, artists, performers, activists, and thinkers. Diversity adds to the richness of the CSUS experience and enlivens the educational aims of the school.
CSUS, as an institution, feels strongly that economics should not deter great students from attending our school. 23% of our student population receives need-based financial aid each year. Choosing an appropriate learning environment can be an exciting process. We believe there should be a good match between the school and the student, so be yourself, ask questions, and enjoy this adventure.
