Anacapa School Wikipedia
Anacapa School was founded in 1981 in Santa Barbara, with its headquarters in the building that is now the Boys and Girls Club of America. Since, it has moved through a number of other buildings. It now rests at 814 Santa Barbara Street, in a building that was once a World War II war hospital, as well as the Anna S.C. Blake School for Girls, and Santa Barbara Junior College. It was founded by Gordon Sichi, a public elementary school teacher who was frustrated with the California Public School system.
Anacapa School operates on a three part "learning wheel," with three major components to the education that students should receive. These include technical knowledge, personal/social knowledge and critical thinking knowledge.
Anacapa is still run by its founding headmaster, Gordon Sichi, as well as the head of faculty Suzie Sichi.
