Upper School

The Upper School provides an academic program that is intentionally designed to prepare students for college and beyond. A variety of teaching styles include seminar-style classrooms, lectures, discussions, workshops, projects and collaborative learning allows us to meet the students where they are and provide challenge and support.

Unlocking Potential

How do we unlock the potential in all students? It’s the way we engage, support, and embrace the educational experience of each individual student, as well as the way we emphasize creative thinking in preparing students with a toolkit of applicable skills in an ever-changing world.

Middle School

The Middle School offers students a comprehensive, challenging, and integrated academic program. The classroom experience emphasizes interdisciplinary relationships, helping students to learn about one subject through another. The programs complement each other with a theme that unites the program for the year in history, math, English, world languages, and fine arts.
