Teaching & Learning

We believe that a truly excellent education integrates opportunities to explore a variety of interests while developing a strong academic base. So curiosity is encouraged at every step.

While exploring all subject areas, our students ask questions, develop their minds and spirits, and grow interests that they are encouraged to explore more fully. 

Our students create an environment where they want to challenge themselves and one another athletically, artistically … and academically.

Learn more about our balanced approach to academics at all grade levels. See our curriculum and our Pedagogical Master Plan.
