Notes for Prospective Students

The student body from pre-school through high school is divided into three communities of learners: Primary (3 to 6 years); Lower School (6 to 12 years); and Upper School (12 to 18 years).  This format ensures an environment in which each student can develop intellectually and emotionally at his or her own rate.  Geography, creative writing, problem solving, Spanish, life science, and community service are integral parts of the curriculum at all levels – Montessori Primary through high school.          

At the Upper School level (12 to 18 years), the curriculum is exclusively college-preparatory, and the environment closely resembles a workplace with individual contracts, group projects, team meetings, class discussions, and student/teacher appointments.

Independent study, joint-enrollment with local colleges, and professional internships are incorporated as achievement, commitment, and maturity permit.
Long-term research projects and community service involvement are inherent in the program.
Students address political and environmental responsibilities as well as develop in-depth analytical and communication skills.
Throughout high school, each student is assisted in evaluating and addressing his or her individual strengths and weaknesses in order to achieve college readiness both academically and emotionally.
The resulting confidence, self-awareness, and genuine desire for inquiry make college a natural conclusion and confirm life as a continuous learning and growing experience.
