Awards and Recognitions

Communitas Awards

Trū School was honored by the Communitas Awards for our community benefit theater program.

Excellence In Community Service

“The Communitas Awards is an international effort to recognize exceptional businesses, organizations, and individuals who are unselfishly giving of themselves and their resources, and those who are changing how they do business to benefit their communities.” Most recently the Trū Players sponsored the Center for Farmworker Families, a local nonprofit based in Watsonville, CA that addresses the powerful economic, social, and political barriers that prevent our state’s agricultural labor force from achieving even tolerable living conditions, much less fair treatment. In their yearlong study of food systems, the students learned how food is produced in ways that can benefit or harm ecosystems, and how the economics of food production affect prices, labor, and distribution. We also raised over $1,500!

Associations & Accreditations

Trū School is proud to be a member of these independent school associations.

The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) is a nonprofit membership association that provides services to more than 2,000 schools and associations of schools in the United States and abroad, including more than 1,600 nonprofit, private K-12 schools in the U.S. that are self-determining in mission and program and are governed by independent boards. As the largest association of independent schools, NAIS co-creates the future of education by uniting and empowering our community.

Since 1941, the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS) has helped hundreds of schools educate their students with excellence and care. Our rigorous accreditation process ensures schools meet and maintain high ethical and academic standards. Elevated leadership results in a better experience for students — and a better world for all.

The Bay Area Directors of Admission (BADA) group exists to support families and schools in the admission process by promoting best practices, coordinated timelines, and open communication. Members agree to collaboratively implement best practices so as to ensure smooth, respectful and predictable admission experiences for both families and schools. Membership is open to independent schools in the Bay Area that share and agree to practice the mission of BADA by living the guidelines of best practices, adherence to protocols and deadlines, and maintaining open communication.
