Academics

Preschool

Early Childhood program spanning preschool to prekindergarten to kindergarten

Our preschool nurtures each student’s natural sense of wonder and innate curiosity, laying the foundation for a lifelong love of learning and equipping children for academic success.

Lower School

Elementary school spanning grades 1-4

Our students are joyful, actively engaged learners who thrive working with experienced teachers. The curriculum is challenging, flexible, and keeps bodies and minds active as an understanding and appreciation of the world, the community, and themselves is awakened.

Middle School

Spanning grades 5-8

Students in grades five to eight work with a team of teachers who provide a vibrant environment focused on academic rigor. It is balanced through attentive, nurturing support and the quest to appropriately challenge students in and out of the classroom.

Upper School

High school spanning grades 9-12

This is a place where all students are deeply engaged in the classroom and through co-curricular activities. Our rich and varied academic program prepares them for top-tier colleges and universities, while allowing plenty of room to explore and discover new interests and ideas.

Balance Matters

It’s the difference between being challenged and being pushed, the difference between healthy competition and a win-at-any-cost attitude, the difference between exploring your interests and ticking off boxes for a college application. It’s balance, and it matters.
