Founded in 1959, the Santa Cruz Cooperative School was originally established to serve the children of the Gulf Oil Company personnel. In 1970, SCCS became the cooperative it is today.
The SCCS campus began a dramatic expansion in 1999. In early 2000, the pre-kindergarten through 2nd grade students began classes in the newly constructed Early Childhood Center (ECC). In August of 2004, a second building, the Primary Center (PC), was completed and now houses the 3rd through 5th grade classes. With the combined input of teachers, students, and parents, both new buildings are designed specifically for the learning levels of elementary students.
Library Media Center
In August of 2006, the SCCS Library Media Center (LMC) opened its doors to students for the first time. The LMC is centrally located on campus and provides a 480 sq. meter learning space with more than 25 computers and 15,000 books for students to conduct research, study and read. The continued improvement of the SCCS campus and facilities has been a constant goal for SCCS and providing students with the best resources possible has helped lead to their success in continuing education.
SCCS has 47 years of experience educating children in Santa Cruz using English curriculum. Our experience ensures your children study a curriculum designed to prepare them for undergraduate studies at colleges and universities around the world.
