Welcome to Branson!

Branson isn’t a stepping stone to the next stop; it’s a foundation of character for a life-long journey.

Branson School is a coeducational, college-preparatory day school of 370 students, grades 9-12, located in Marin County, California. Our mission is to develop students who make a positive impact in the world by leading lives of integrity, purpose, learning, and joy. 

Branson is more than just a great school. It’s an ever-evolving educational community that challenges and supports students as they grow into confident, thoughtful, ethical people. We encourage students to be brave in whatever they do – in the classroom, on the field, on stage, in the community, even with their peers. Because when you are brave, anything is possible.

At Branson, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential to create a truly excellent learning environment and a vibrant, caring community. We aspire to have every member of the Branson community feel a deep sense of belonging and inclusion.
