The 5th Annual Stanbridge Spring Gala
Saturday, March 10 – 7:00 p.m.
Held at Domenico Winery in San Carlos
Join the Stanbridge Community for an evening of food, wine, live music, and more to benefit the students and programs of Stanbridge Academy.
This event offers a night to mix and mingle with Stanbridge families, friends, teachers, staff, and board members as we gather to celebrate and raise funds for one of the Bay Area's only K–12 schools for students who learn differently.
The annual spring gala is Stanbridge Academy's sole fundraising event of the year. All proceeds from the evening's tickets, donation drawing, and auction will benefit Stanbridge students and programs, including our signature experiential curriculum—the evening's fund-a-need centerpiece, and a program that truly benefits every student at our school.

Stanbridge is a caring, inclusive K–12 school in San Mateo for students with mild to moderate learning differences and social communication disorders. Many, if not most, of our students struggle with multiple challenges, including students diagnosed on the autism spectrum. We have found that this balance encourages students to benefit from their classmates' strengths and to respect their differences. Stanbridge uses an individualized, whole student approach so that students thrive and develop their academic, social, executive function, and emotional capabilities to their fullest potential.
