School Profile

Our learning model

EBIA is a rigorous 6-12 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) school with a unique focus on the social and emotional skills students need to be leaders. Students learn to be problem solvers and strong advocates who work together and take responsibility for their own learning.

Learning Model

PROJECT BASED LEARNING

Students work together on long-term, “real-world” projects that combine many different subjects, and learn to present those projects using technology.

BLENDED LEARNING

Students alternate between different learning models, including online learning, and in later grades will be self-guided.

INNOVATION & DESIGN

We make and do things! EBIA is a safe place for students to explore their interests and learn the life lessons taught through practice and experimentation.

We believe in diversity

EBIA students prepare for society and the workforce by working with and appreciating those who are different from themselves in all aspects of life.

Diversity

AP Capstone Program

EBIA is one of approximately 1,500 schools worldwide, and the only school in Oakland, to implement the AP CapstoneTM diploma program―an innovative program that allows students to develop skills that matter most for college success, such as research, collaboration, and communication. The program consists of two courses taken in sequence: AP® Seminar and AP ResearchTM. Developed in direct response to feedback from higher education faculty and college admission officers, AP Capstone complements the in-depth, subject-specific study of other Advanced Placement® courses and exams.
