The Venerable Master Hsuan Hua, a Chinese Buddhist monk, came to the United States in 1962 to propagate Buddhism in the West. He vowed to save the world by means of education. Before becoming a monk, he established a school in his home in order to teach the impoverished children of his community at no charge. Later, continuing to act on his vow, the Master founded Instilling Goodness Elementary School in 1976, followed by Developing Virtue Secondary School in 1981, the first Buddhist high school in the nation.
The culturally diverse student body of over 200 students (K-12) includes a balanced mix of day students from the local vicinity, boarding students from other cities, states, or countries (including Asia and Europe), as well as students whose families live on campus. Our students are of various religious faiths and ethnic origins, though predominantly of Asian or mixed Asian-Caucasian origin.
Situated on the grounds of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas, a 488-acre Buddhist monastery and international community in the rural outskirts of Ukiah, 110 miles north of San Francisco, the Instilling Goodness/Developing Virtue Schools educate boys and girls separately, creating an environment conducive to academic and personal growth.
The approximately 40 faculty members include monastic and lay members of Dharma Realm Buddhist Association, as well as teachers and professionals from around the world, who create a stimulating learning environment through a blend of Western and Eastern teaching philosophies and methods.
