About Geffen Academy
Geffen Academy at UCLA is an inclusive and challenging college-preparatory school for students in grades 6-12 aligned with the science of adolescence.
While with us and beyond, students are encouraged to be questioners, analysts, presenters, active, and creative, collaborative, and engaged young adults who practice their skills, competencies, and relationships with deliberation.
Geffen Academy graduates believe that knowledge is beautiful, transformative, and relevant to one’s life and civic responsibility in a just, free, and global community.
For nearly 100 years, UCLA has been a pioneer, persevering through impossibility, turning the futile into the attainable.
We doubt the critics, reject the status quo and see opportunity in dissatisfaction. Our campus, faculty and students are driven by optimism. It is not naïve; it is essential. And it has fueled every accomplishment, allowing us to redefine what's possible, time after time.
This can-do perspective has brought us 13 Nobel Prizes, 12 MacArthur Fellows, more NCAA titles than any university and more Olympic medals than most nations. Our faculty and alumni helped create the Internet and pioneered reverse osmosis. And more than 140 companies have been created based on technology developed at UCLA.

Mirman is responsible for both the academic and social-emotional growth of students. We foster strong character traits in our students as they develop both the individual and community skills necessary to be contributing members of society. Mirman’s Core Values are:
Responsibility — We are obligated to care for ourselves, our community, and our environment.
Integrity — What we believe is right directly shapes our actions.
Discovery — We enthusiastically pursue knowledge about ourselves and the world around us.
Empathy — We strive to understand and value the experiences and feelings of others.
Resilience — We recognize challenges as necessary steps in learning and personal growth.
These Core Values are discussed and taught in our classrooms, on our playgrounds, on field trips, and at sporting events.
Mirman School embraces, supports and values the many facets and faces of giftedness as we nurture our students’ abilities to reach their highest potential. As an educational institution, we are committed to personalizing our curriculum through depth and complexity, while celebrating the intellectual, creative, and kinesthetic dimensions of childhood and adolescence. We foster a culture of inclusivity and connectivity in which our students’ academic, co-curricular, and socio-emotional experiences and needs are supported. Mirman faculty and staff model empathy and respect in our communal effort to enhance whole-child learning. Our goal is to inspire lifelong curiosity and learning, the continuous pursuit of excellence, and ethical leadership amongst our students and graduates.
