The Power of Partnership: Geffen Academy and UCLA

Over the past 100 years, the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) has become one of the most renowned public institutions of higher learning in the world—a beacon for the best and brightest. Geffen Academy students are thus uniquely positioned to take advantage of UCLA's commitment to teaching, research, and service. 

Geffen Academy at UCLA was founded in part to support the recruitment and retention of UCLA's world-renowned faculty and staff.

There are many ways that our partnership plays out at Geffen Academy. For example:
  • UCLA undergraduate and graduate students contribute to campus life, as members of BruinCorps, CalTeach, leaders of the school's Classics Club, as teachers’ assistants, on-campus tutors, and student chaperones.
  • Every year we host “UCLA at Geffen Academy Day,” at which professors and staff offer workshops for students at our campus. World-renowned astrophysicists, legal historians, culture makers, literary scholars, and designers of robots visit here to share their learning and accomplishments with our students. Watch the video here.
  • Our student athletes are exposed to UCLA's long and impressive athletic legacy. Geffen Academy students who participate in athletics play at the UCLA Student Activities Center, Drake Stadium, the Sunset Canyon tennis courts, and intramural fields.
