    About Us

    Established in 1978, the Venture School is a fully accredited comprehensive school for students in grades K-12, and delivers the curriculum through independentstudy. Students come to Venture a minimum of once a week and spend about an hour with their teacher. Students receive weekly assignments, and are expected to spend approximately one hour per subject in study each day. 

    Students attend Venture by choice. Venture helps students to pursue their educational opportunities outside the classroom, yet within the framework of the educational requirements of the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. The nature of the independent study program gives students a flexible educational experience. While attending Venture, many students take courses concurrently at the local community colleges. Students learn and practice the self discipline necessary for future success.
