Lick-Wilmerding is a non-profit, independent, coeducational, college preparatory day school serving grades 9-12 with a tradition of integrating demanding academic courses with technical and fine arts.
Endowed by San Francisco entrepreneur James Lick, the California School of Mechanical Arts opened its doors in 1895. Subsequently, the “Lick School” merged with the Wilmerding School of Industrial Arts and the Lux School of Industrial Training.
Our 49 full-time teachers and 13 part-time teachers, administrators, and program directors hold 53 Master’s degrees and 8 Doctorates. Performing, technical, and fine arts teachers have supplemented their formal degrees with extensive work and performance experience.
