Upper School

Curriculum

Small enough and smart enough to truly personalize each learning experience.

The Upper School offers a dynamic, collaborative environment for teachers and students.

Opportunities in academics, athletics, and the arts expand dramatically. In small classes, teachers and students get to know one another well. Numerous advanced placement and interdisciplinary courses, independent projects, and individualized college planning combine to make the experience highly personal and exciting.

Together with their enthusiastic teachers, students learn to search for understanding, rather than just the right answer.

They travel to distant countries, design original research, and rise to new challenges. In this stimulating setting, students are free to pursue their passions as far as their interests can carry them—all the way to the finest colleges and universities in the nation.
