Ms. Jan Dunning

Jan Dunning SmallMs. Jan Dunning, an established leader in education accruing over forty years of expertise, began her extensive teaching career by earning her B.A. in Education with an emphasis in Special Education from the University of California, Irvine. In 1977, Ms. Dunning began the first tutoring agency in San Diego County, North County Tutoring Agency, followed by the first off-campus accredited high school courses in the late 1980's. With her expansive educational background and well deserved reputation as a premiere educator, Ms. Dunning opened her second tutoring agency, North County Center for Educational Development, in 1997. In September of 1999, Ms. Dunning transformed her second tutoring service into Cal Coast Academy's full-time schooling program. Dunning's innovative learning model of a 6:1 student/teacher ratio, is leading the educational movement by elevating modern education to its pinnacle. Creating a customized learning program for the individualistic and holistic needs for each student is the cornerstone of Ms. Dunning's educational model. The academic infusion of Cal Coast Academy's core values prepares students academically, socially, physically, and spiritually, to embark upon adulthood as confident, successful, self-directed self-advocates.

Dunning's vision for 21st century education is propelling Cal Coast Academy to the forefront of education's modern arena. This leap will begin with the implementation of state-of-the-art technology, utilizing smart boards, video conferencing, iPads, film, and production sets, to name a few.  Boundaries will be lifted as learning and teaching styles open to the limitless benefits of creativity, collaboration, and community intercommunications. Dunning envisions Cal Coast Academy exploding in to the local, national, and international educational arenas via technology and exchange-student opportunities. Students, educational institutions, and private businesses will share a global interconnectedness, allowing collaborative classroom learning to fuse with critical real-life experiences. As the antiquated educational system continues to fall short in meeting the needs of students and families, Dunning's global vision for transforming education is markedly the quintessential solution. Cal Coast Academy continues to pave the path for the new educational standard, and Jan Dunning remains steadfast in her belief that fostering the students' individual needs within the framework of global interaction is the foundation of this successful learning model.
