Driving Directions

  • From Reno:
    Take I-80 West towards Sacramento. Exit Douglas Blvd. Stay
    in the right of the two left-turn lanes. Immediately after you
    turn left onto Sunrise Blvd. take the fly over exit on your right (this
    is actually an exit on the freeway overpass. If you miss the flyover
    then take first right after crossing the freeway (Sunrise Blvd.).
    Either option drops you on Sunrise Blvd. Turn left on Cirby and
    school will be down the road on the right hand side of the street.
  • From San Francisco:
    Take I-80 East towards Reno. When you enter the outskirts of Sacramento
    stay to the right and take the I-80 Reno split. (If you stay on
    Business I-80 through Sacramento you’ll add 20-30 minutes to your
    commute.) Exit on Auburn / Riverside Blvd. exit. There is
    a different Auburn Blvd. exit in Sacramento … do not take that one!
    Take the Auburn exit that is combined with Riverside Blvd. At
    this exit stay in the right-hand lane like you are going to go onto
    Auburn Blvd. Instead of exiting right or left on Auburn go straight
    and end up on a frontage road that parallels I-80. Turn right
    on Cirby Way and the school will be down the road on your right side.
  • From Modesto:
    Take I-99 North. I-99 will merge with Business I-80 as you enter
    downtown Sacramento. At the merge stay to the far left merging
    onto I-80 to Reno (basically you’ll stay straight on the freeway).
    Stay on I-80 till you reach Auburn/Riverside exit. Follow directions
    above from San Francisco
