* In addition to Academic Subjects such as Social and Community Studies, American Studies, Life Science, Conceptual Physics, Mathematics, English, French and Spanish, subjects such as Ethical Responsibility and Global Engagement play an important role in our curriculum.
Students will explore beliefs and opinions from new perspectives, becoming aware of their role as members of a global community. Students will develop a global perspective and be prepared to live in a society that is increasingly complex and interconnected. By offering an integrated curriculum, we will graduate students who are culturally, politically, and socially aware. These students will be resilient and competent to engage the world around them.
Students will develop the ability to discern right from wrong as a matter of conscience, and to develop the courage to act on their moral beliefs. Through a curriculum and culture deeply and distinctively committed to an ethic of personal responsibility as a way of life, students will learn the value of living with integrity, as they and their teachers seek to learn what is fair, compassionate and right.

A place of:
- RESPECT, where we will respect others, oneself and the environment, by exercising empathy and affording dignity to all;
- UNDERSTANDING, where we will seek to find truth more than to win, through honesty and engagement with ideas; and where the development of individual, moral responsibility and conscience is prized;
- BALANCE, where depth of understanding, requiring time and reflection, will be balanced with breadth of opportunity;
- PURPOSE, where students will find their place in the world, striving to reach beyond their own needs to express care and make a difference in the lives of others;
- PASSION for learning, where important questions are posed, students think critically and find their voice, developing habits of learning that endure.
