History of the Four-Fold Plan

The Buckley School, founded in 1933 by Isabelle Buckley, is the oldest K-12 independent co-educational day school in Los Angeles. Dr. Buckley developed the Four-Fold Plan of Education with equal emphasis on Academics, the Arts, Athletics, and Moral Education. These four pillars remain the foundation of our school and are continually updated to reflect current research in teaching, brain science, diversity, and a globalized world.
