Co-curated by Claudia Rankine, the location of Home School Claremont 2017 is Pitzer College, in Claremont California, located approximately 30 miles outside of Los Angeles. The area boasts the collective campus of the Claremont Colleges, thriving artistic communities and local nightlife, good restaurants and balmy weather all set in an intimate town ideal for a week's retreat. 

The Home School is pleased to partner with Pitzer College and the DoubleTree Claremont Hotel. We're very grateful for their generous support.



Pitzer College was named for benefactor, noted philanthropist and orange grower Russell K. Pitzer (1878-1978). Founded in 1963 as the sixth institution of The Claremont Colleges, Pitzer began as a residential liberal arts campus for women with a curricular emphasis in the social and behavioral sciences. Pitzer was the first independent women’s college to open in the United States since Bennington College in 1932.
