A Great Future Starts at IvyClimbing!

If you are looking for a place that will encourage you to learn about yourself, develop new skills, and build your future, we hope that you will consider IvyClimbing. We take great pride in providing our students with an uncommonly engaging and rewarding experience: wrestling with an idea during an essay brainstorming session, discussing a research hypothesis after school, or talking about anything and everything over a bottle of ice cold coffee. Personal attention and face-to-face exchanges are built into our culture, making learning and college applications an unforgettable experience.

IvyClimbing’s location is ideal. It is within walking distance to downtown Sunnyvale and El Camino Real. It is also on the same street as the Sunnyvale Public Library.

IvyClimbing is known for choosing the best of the best – putting yourself in that group can only make you grow. You never know who you will run into: the next great innovator, dancer, and playwright. You will form bonds with some of them that will last for a life time.
