Young Oak Kim Academy is a school where all students are empowered to set positive examples, actively engage in STEAM learning, and contribute as productive community members in a diverse global environment. 


Young Oak Kim Academy prepares all middle school students to become lifelong learners and academically successful for all high-school and career and college-prep A-G courses. We stimulate interest in the humanities, science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. All teachers are highly-qualified and dedicated to providing a strong foundation in subject areas aligned with California State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards; thus, students engage in project-based learning, hands-on activities, cooperative learning, and educational field trips. Student-centered learning classes utilize differentiated instruction and numeracy & literacy–development strategies; furthermore, we personalize individual student support through our robust Advisory program. All school stakeholders model trust, respect, responsibility, and civic duty to ensure a safe learning environment. Our committed school support staff, parent volunteers, and partnerships with community-based organizations illuminate the educational pathways to ensure students discover their passion and grow into well-rounded digital citizens.
