Primary School:
Primary School challenges students in the context of a supportive environment, helping them build strong academic skills along with self-confidence. Girls feel motivated to learn, take risks and ask questions. Lively, colorful classrooms and imaginative hands-on projects inspire a sense of excitement about learning.

Our girls feel connected with each other and with their teachers—and they thrive.

Middle School:
The Middle School program challenges girls without burdening them, guiding them as they navigate their way from childhood to adolescence. Our program balances a girl’s desire for increased responsibility and independence with her need for support and structure. Small classes and an advisory system ensure that every girl is known as an individual and can make meaningful connections with adult advocates. We teach study skills along with content, so that students are fully prepared for the demands of Upper School.

We offer a wide range of Advanced Placement classes every year, and students who wish to pursue an interest in a specific discipline can initiate an independent study with a faculty member.
