Principal's Message

Greetings Family, Friends and Fellow Community Members,

It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome you to the Santa Barbara Community Academy!  We are a school of choice in the Santa Barbara Unified School District, which means that anyone in the Santa Barbara Unified School District attendance boundaries can choose to enroll at our school. Please come and visit us any time.  

Learning opportunities are designed and implemented that allow students to investigate the world, recognize and understand multiple perspectives, communicate ideas, and take action. We do this by providing students with interdisciplinary learning to acquire basic skills, while also developing empathy for others and providing all students with rich, relevant meaningful tasks that foster critical thinking skills and an awareness of the greater world in which they live.

  We value the partnerships we have with the families of our students. When enrolling at SBCA, you are committing to joining our community of learners to support your child's education. It is extremely important that we all work together, as learning takes place both in school and at home. Together we can support students to make sure they are reaching their fullest potential.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is an honor to lead this school and work with this incredible community of learners. 


Anna Scharfeld
