The Cambridge School Finds a Permanent Home

Jacob GoodwilerNews


After ten years of active searching for properties along the 56 corridor, The Cambridge School is pleased to announce that it recently purchased the building they have been leasing for the past few years. The school is committed to a tried and true Classical Christian model of education that is formative both intellectually and spiritually. Located off the 56 freeway at Black Mountain Road, they are strategically situated in the Rancho Penasquitos neighborhood with easy access to the 56, 15, and 5 freeways.

1415-KP-Playground-4The school’s Board of Trustees spent many hundreds of hours throughout the years searching for a permanent home to house their growing school. Founded in 2006, The Cambridge School opened its doors with nine students and has continued to grow rapidly each and every year. This fall, they are expecting over 235 students spanning from Kindergarten-Prep to 10th grade and look forward to being a fully built out, K-12 school, with the class of 2018 as their first graduating class of high school seniors.

1516-First-Day-FB-19As a school that has had to move four times in its short history, it is a joy to be celebrating their 10th Anniversary year on a campus they can now call home thanks to the timely and strategic generosity of the following foundations and families who allowed them to make an offer quickly when the opportunity arose unexpectedly with a very tight timeline for the closing of escrow:

  • The City Hill Foundation
  • The Lampstand Foundation
  • The Chanil Foundation
  • A family foundation which has asked to remain unnamed
  • As well as the following families:
  • Tim and Kay Winn, Jonathan and Conyee Lim, Chuck and Gail Kendall, Bill and Sue Weber, Ray and Deborah Hom and Eric and Mechel Petersen.


Immediately after the purchase, The Cambridge School began various renovation projects to improve the property in order to better allow them to execute their mission—including transforming the auditorium into a multipurpose gym and theater stage, expanding the upper school lunch area, adding classrooms to the upper and lower school and giving the bathrooms a facelift.

Students and parents alike delighted to be in the newly improved campus this fall as the school is celebrating its 10th anniversary year.
