Teaching & Learning

We believe that a truly excellent education integrates opportunities to explore a variety of interests while developing a strong academic base. It is this combination of passion and purpose that creates children who are eager to learn.

Our students explore coursework in all subject areas as a means of educating their minds and spirits 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.
