Stratford private school to open second campus this fall

MILPITAS — Stratford School, a private school company with more than two dozen campuses across California, will be opening a second campus in Milpitas this fall.

The company said it is remodeling a two-story building at 25 Corning Ave. to create a new, K-5 elementary school. It’ll include 18 classrooms, a multipurpose room with a stage for performances, a library and outdoor space including turf fields, playground structures and a basketball court, according to a statement from the company.

Stratford already runs a preschool through eighth grade campus about 1.5 miles away at 341 Great Mall Parkway. The company will hold an open house for the new campus at the Great Mall Parkway campus on May 1.

“I am thrilled to expand Stratford’s academically advanced, socially enriched, dynamic education at our second school in Milpitas,” Kristen Saham, Stratford’s director of lower school, said in a statement.

Annual tuition at the new campus will cost $21,840, according to the company’s website. Kindergarten annual tuition is $20,311, and middle school annual tuition $25,750 at the Great Mall Parkway location.

Tuition rates can vary based on programs, according to the company website.
