Fostering intellectual, physical and emotional growth through an age-appropriate curriculum and a facility designed to support our learners.
Our curriculum, taught by a faculty devoted to teaching ages 11-14, reflects a department-based program enhanced by cross-cultural themes and projects with true intellectual weight. Students begin immediately to undertake tasks calling for more personal organization, study skills, critical thinking, and independent and group work.
