 For over 40 years, the Scripps Ranch Civic Association, SRCA, has looked out for the interests of our community.  Over the years, SRCA has provided a core of volunteers who have shaped our community through contributions to community causes such as schools, clubs, athletics and community events and by lobbying the city, county and state governments for needed necessities such as parks and road improvements.  When over 340 Scripps Ranch residences were devastated by the Cedar wildfire in 2003, SCRA was there to organize relief for the stricken homeowners.  More recently, when the city government decided to shut down the Scripps Ranch Community Center, SRCA negotiated with the city to take over operation of the Center, assuming responsibilities for its expenses in order to preserve the Center for use by our community organizations.  The Scripps Ranch Community Center is the only San Diego community center to have survived the city budget cuts.   

Not a day goes by that you cannot find a newspaper or magazine article decrying the sad state of our city and state finances and reporting that this or that program will need to be cut.  Our elected representatives are especially fond of cutting library hours, community centers, and recreational facilities.  While many communities have resigned themselves to accepting these "necessary" cut backs in city cervices, SRCA has been out there actively lobbying on behalf of the Scripps Ranch Community.  It saved the Scripps Ranch Community Center and it is actively lobbying the city to minimize the impact of the budget cuts on our library and recreational facilities.  It is also working with the city to maintain and improve our road surfaces and to keep traffic moving in the light of new developments in both Scripps Ranch and across the I-15 freeway in Mira Mesa.

 Why Join SRCA?  Because, now, more than ever, we need you to stand up and be counted. While your membership fee will be used to maintain, support and improve our community, your membership, itself, is crucial to the success of our lobbying mission. In numbers there is strength!


Please join SRCA and help keep Scripps Ranch the strong and viable community we have all come to love.  Scripps Ranch Needs you.  Click here to join the SRCA today!

Owners of Scripps Ranch homes and their children have always enjoyed access to highly rated Scripps Ranch Public Schools and excellent private schools.  Now they have a third option, Inovations Academy: A Community Charter School. The new school is located on the corner of Scripps Poway Parkway and Spring Canyon Road.

Inovations Academy is a tax payer supported alternative school, serving K - 8 students in Scripps Ranch and all of San Diego City.  It is a constructivist, project based learning school with a strong character and community development program. Inspired by the ideas of French psychologist Jean Piaget, the Constructivist Educational Philosophy is based on the theory "that students generate knowledge and meaning from an interaction between their experiences and their ideas." Learning is project based and with a "strong character and community development program."  The school also offers Scripps Ranch families an exciting, additional choice in education, choose from a full time (5 day) model or a 2 and 3 day model for home schooling families.

Scripps Ranch Neighborhood Watch



Scripps Ranch has always prided itself on being a safe and friendly community where crime rates are low and neighbors watch out for each other.  In keeping with that spirit, the Scripps Ranch Civic Association is revitalizing the Neighborhood Watch program so that it has comprehensive community-wide coverage.

Neighborhood Watch in San Diego is a crime prevention program that enlists the active participation of citizens in cooperation with local law enforcement to reduce crime.The current American system of neighborhood watches began in the late 1960s and is sponsored by local law enforcement agencies.  Residents are organized into small block or neighborhood groups.  Neighbors work with each other to protect each other and prevent crime by recognizing and reporting suspicious activities to the San Diego Police Department. This has been a highly effective program  because you and your neighbors are the people who really know what is going on in your local community. Neighbors are likely to be the first to see a crime and call for help. The program can also be helpful in case of a local emergency such as the Cedar Fires.

Volunteer block Captains hold a meeting to organize their neighbors and a list of local particpants is made and shared among the   group.  Neighborhood Watch Signs can be hung alerting miscreants that "eyes are upon them"   Rochelle Braunstein (a member of the Claude Braunstein & Associates team) is one of the area coordinators and promises that the work of the Block Captain is not arduous not time consuming.  It is a great way to get to know your neighbors .

If you would like to participate in the Scripps Ranch Neighborhood Watch  Click here  to be taken to the SRCA Neighborhood Watch sign up page. Sign up to be a Block Captain and someone from Neighborhood watch will contact you promptly!

Scripps Ranch Community Theatre

The Consistent Growth of Scripps Ranch Theatre

Scripps Ranch Theatre is an organization that is based in San Diego, California and is run completely by volunteers and is non-profit. The organization is committed to creating entertaining theatre on a consistent basis and has earned a reputation as one of the best small theatres in the entire California area. This is now the 31st season that the group has been together and they are still growing strong.

In fact, SRT has actually won a number of awards and is one of the most successful theatres in San Diego. It continues to grow incredibly fast as more volunteers are getting involved and the subscription base has tripled in the last 3 years.

A Modest Start

In 2009, the Scripps Ranch Theatre in San Diego celebrated their 31st year as an organization. All the way back in 1978 the organization was put together even though there was no home for the group and despite the fact that members and volunteers had to keep props and tools in their garages or living rooms. In fact, an entire play was actually performed in the parking lot of a shopping center due to the fact that no other venue could be found.

In another memorable moment, a rabbit hopped onto stage and interrupted a performance while a performance was being put on at the Scripps Ranch Swim and Racquet Club's basketball court. Finally, in 1992 the theater found its permanent and current home in the Legler Benbough theatre located in the Alliant International University campus.

While things started slow and in a modest manner, SRT has some very big plans for the future. The goal is to become a theatre that can cater to people of all walks of life, age groups, and cultures. Theatres are an important part of society and SRT is focused on being a theatre that provides never ending experiences for everyone.
