The Growing Room Education Council in collaboration with parents and The San Ramon Valley Unified School District has created the most comprehensive after-school program in the East Bay. As a California non-profit Organization, we specialize in social development, academic enrichment, and emotional support to school-aged children in the community.
The Growing Room Academy is a laboratory of creativity. It compliments the mainstream education system and allows students to do the things that make them happy in an innovative and safe environment. With an unlimited variety of courses offered, our mission is to bring meaning to academics, open the doors to creativity and brighten the future of every child through exploring their gifts and talents.
Located in the heart of San Ramon (next to In-N-Out Burger), The Academy is open to the public and a place for students and their families to explore classes in language and culture, STEAM, tutoring, music & movement. We provide educational programming for our members and non-members, including families, home schoolers and special needs children. The Academy is also a great place for educational birthday parties!
We have a wide variety of classes available to the public on a daily basis. Below is a list of upcoming classes that you can sign up for online. You can also view a full schedule on our Academy Page.
