Almaden Country School:
Almaden Country School (ACS) is a nonsectarian, independent school in South San Jose that offers preschool, elementary and middle school programs for students from 4 years of age through to 8th grade. Our school is centrally located on Trinidad Drive in San Jose in Santa Clara County at the southern end of San Francisco Bay. On average, 9 in 10 ACS graduates are admitted to selective private high schools (86% – Average score on the Catholic High School Placement Exam and 85% – Average National Percentile Ranking on Stanford Achievement Test for ACS 7th and 8th graders).
Almaden Country School is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). In 2009, the school received WASC's highest accreditation, a six year term.
The mission of Almaden Country School is to discover the gifts in every child. We provide a safe and affirming environment for learning, empowering children to strive, explore and build a sense of personal value. Our teachers create a rich academic foundation that corresponds with the developmental stages of childhood. We offer a wide variety of opportunities for children to extend their intellectual, social and personal potential.
Our students become delightful people — confident, kind, concerned and ready to make significant contributions to our world. At Almaden Country School, we prepare children to live extraordinary lives.

To achieve our mission, we commit ourselves to provide the essential components of the ACS experience for the children and families we serve:

- Peers who are motivated and interested in learning, striving and achieving.
- Expectations — and preparedness — for success in high school, college and life.
