Take a Personal Tour

One of the best ways to evaluate Almaden Country School is to observe our teachers and students in the classroom. During our one-hour tour, a member of the admissions team will explain the history and philosophy of our school, and then guide you through classrooms where you will see teachers and students in action.

To arrange a tour, please fill out the Online Inquiry Form or contact our Admissions Office at  or call our main line (408) 997-0424.

Attend an Open House

ACS Open Houses take place on pre-scheduled Saturdays so teachers are free to visit with you. You are encouraged to ask in-depth questions about our teaching practices and our curriculum. You may also examine textbooks and see samples of students’ work. After you have registered, one of our Middle School student tour guides will be your personal escort to the classes and programs that interest you most. Bring your whole family and let your prospective student gather his or her own opinions about ACS. There is one weekday Open House for families who would like to see classes in session.

Open houses are typically held one day per month in November, December, and January. Dates for open houses are posted in advance. In the meantime, please contact us to schedule a personal tour by emailing or complete the Online Inquiry Form.
