HistoryEdit

The school opened in 1944 as a kindergarten to sixth grade school at the St. David's Parish Sunday School building at 4343 Radford Avenue in Studio City. It moved to its current site in the 1945–46 school year.[6] It gradually expanded to include junior high school, a girls high school, and the acceptance of boys for all levels in the mid-1980s.[7] The Fourth R, a film made in the late 1940s explains the founding of the school based on a need for religion in the daily education of the school's students. The chapel program continues this tradition. Since its founding, Campbell Hall School has had three headmasters: the Rev. Alexander Campbell, the founder; the Rev. Canon Thomas G. Clarke, who served in this position for 32 years and the current[when?] headmaster, the Rev. Julian Bull.[citation needed]

TuitionEdit

Tuition for the 2019–2020 school year is $36,240 (Elementary School; Grades K–6), $41,895 (grades 7–11), and $42,525 as a Senior (grade 12).[8] Additional fees include $2,500 for admission processing assessed only once in each family's career at Campbell Hall. Fees include Yearbook, Parents’ Association, Technology, Tuition Guarantee Plan, Student Body Fee (grades 7–12), Graduation Fee (grade 12), and Books (grades K-6). For grades 7–12 books are ordered online; families are responsible for ordering and payment. Over $3,000,000 of Campbell Hall's $26,000,000 budget is dedicated to financial aid, although much of this is used to attract diversity and sports playing students. 25% of the enrolled students receive grants averaging 50% of the cost of tuition. The remaining money for financial aid comes from the schools's endowment.


Senior seminarsEdit

Campbell Hall School offers a set of Senior Seminars to graduating students. These classes range from a nostalgic view of the glory days of sports, to more topical issues that examine current controversies in America and others that attempt to examine what constitutes "evil". Each class is discussion based.

AthleticsEdit

Campbell Hall participates in a range of sports at all grade levels. Campbell Hall includes a boys varsity basketball team that won the State of California Division IV Championship in 2005, 2007, and 2008, led by the National Gatorade Player of the Year, Jrue Holiday.

During the 2006–07 season, the Campbell Hall varsity team was ranked as high as #3 in the nation, according to MaxPreps.com, and won the 06–07 Division IV California State Champions. Under head coach Juan Velazquez, the Varsity baseball team won back to back CIF Southern Section Division VI championships in 2005 and 2006. Teams in both boys and girls have won California Interscholastic Federation championships in tennis, baseball, and basketball. On Saturday, March 24, 2011[when?], Campbell Hall defeated Santa Rosa Cardinal Newman in the Division IV State Finals, 70–34. This is the Vikings' second state championship in three years. After winning their last championship, Campbell Hall has moved into California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Division III.

The football team started playing eight-man football in 1986 after the high school became co-ed. In the late 2010s, the football team has gained prominence as a premier 11-man program in California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section. The year 2016 marked their best season in the decade at 7–3.

The girls' tennis team achieved four titles in a seven-year span, including a CIF Division III in 2004, Division II in 2007, and Division I in 2009 and 2010. Track and field and cross country are also offered.
