Grades 9 - 12

Deep scholarship and independent thinking form the academic core of our Upper School, private high school, education. Choice plays a key role as well, as students make decisions about what studio and performing arts classes they might take; whether to pursue college preparatory, honors, or AP classes; which sports or clubs they’ll choose; and, eventually, what history and English electives they will select their senior year.

Curriculum OVERVIEW

Grades 9-12 curriculum is designed to prepare students to successfully continue their education at the college level with emphasis on critical thinking, problem solving, and applying knowledge to new situations.
