Due to COVID-19, we are unable to host you on our beautiful campus at this time. This does not mean you can't get to know our community and school better! Our close and welcoming community is one of the most incredible aspects of SBMS and we invite you to get to know us...virtually! We will be offering virtual tours, Q&A sessions with our admissions team and Head of School, virtual Open Houses, and so much more so that you walk away with a strong sense of Santa Barbara Middle School. To make sure you are receiving up to date information on our admissions events, please fill out our request information form (if you have not done so already) so that you receive announcements and invitations via email. For now, we invite you to explore our Diamond Curriculum through our website. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions at admissions@sbms.org.

*Please note that dates and events are subject to change based on the evolving COVID-19 situation.
