Living in Pasadena

Pasadena, California is best known for hosting the annual Rose Parade and Rose Bowl, the oldest college football bowl game in the nation. But our city of more than 140,000 residents is also a major cultural center of the San Gabriel Valley, home to the Norton Simon Museum, the Pasadena Playhouse, and the USC Pacific Asia Museum.

The School joins the area's many educational and scientific institutions, including the California Institute of Technology, ArtCenter College of Design, the Pasadena City College, and the nearby NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Huntington Library and Gardens. 

One of the city's most popular destinations is Old Pasadena, 21 blocks of shopping and dining, where parks, palm trees, and lush green foothills line the sunny streets. The iconic City Hall building, which you may recognize from the sitcom "Parks and Recreation," is a leading example of Pasadena's architectural beauty. 

Our Location

Just 25 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 10 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena enjoys convenient access to many of Southern California's most treasured outdoor recreational areas and cultural attractions.
