Creating innovative thinkers that impact the world.

Our Mission

Is to engageeducate, and empower our learning community to be caring, passionate, life-long learners and civic leaders prepared for collegeworkforce, and life.


e3 Civic High is not your typical school.

We aren’t restrained by unnecessary, outdated tradition. Instead, when you enter into the learning studio, you’ll find something fresh that pulls you in. Learning is hands-on, focused on application, and tailored to each scholar.


We always aim for the highest caliber of education.

At e3 Civic High, we know the lasting impact a quality education provides. And because we want our scholars to go out and change the world, we give deep thought to our design-thinking curriculum.


Our high graduation and college placement rates showcases our scholars success.

We care deeply about life after school. Our graduates walk away with clarity on their goals and confidence in their capabilities. Whatever their goals, they leave e3 Civic High inspired and equipped to reach new heights.

There are no resources or collections to display

We believe a school should fit the student, not the other way around.

We are a public charter school open to all students in the San Diego area. Our tailored approach offers small classroom sizes, passionate learning facilitators (teachers), and unique opportunities. 


Tactically located in the heart of San Diego, e3 Civic High has a reach into local businesses and organizations. All senior scholars participate in self-selected internships to gain hands-on experience.
