  • We challenge our students to acknowledge their strengths and weaknesses constructively through intentional spiritual, academic, service, athletic, and social experiences empowering them to become transformational thinkers and collaborative communicators.
  • Our students believe it is essential to always ask, ponder, and investigate the unknown in order to propose, devise, and enact transformative solutions establishing a more just society.
  • Lead faculty members are all fully credentialed and represent over 426 years of education experience.  Thirteen faculty members hold advanced degrees.  
  • Nearly 100% of graduates are accepted to their high school of choice where they consistently place into the honors programs.
