The Middle School offers our sixth, seventh, and eighth graders a challenging yet supportive environment – one that gives them a solid background in the skills and study habits that will allow them to succeed in high school and beyond. The comprehensive curriculum in the Middle School emphasizes – in addition to the basic skills of reading, writing, language, math, and science – responsibility, hard work, and the benefits of a college education.
Special programs in reading and the environmental sciences broaden our students' understanding of the world they will soon inherit.
Upper School Program:
We offer our high school students a rich, rigorous college preparatory curriculum designed to sharpen study skills and critical thinking abilities, as they discover and develop their special interests and talents.
