The Gray Academy is a non-profit, non-public TK-8 school founded in 2018 by Kristen and Gordon Gray in Santa Monica whose program is structured to meet both the high-level and complex special education needs as well as the therapy needs of the students all in one location. The school is filling a gap in the traditional school environment that does not meet these medically fragile children's complex needs. 

Now, Dana Tompkins, a local mom of a young son with cerebral palsy, is leading the charge to bring the wonderful program at The Gray Academy to Orange County to serve our local children with complex medical needs who so desperately need it. 

The first step in our mission to open an Orange County location is to fundraise! On Saturday, June 10, The Gray Academy Orange County is hosting our first annual Play for Gray Pickleball Tournament at The Newport Beach Tennis Club. Join us for a fun day of pickleball play, free food and drink, silent auction and more all in support of the kids of The Gray Academy Orange County!
