Our liberal arts curriculum provides a focused and well-rounded education that nurtures the confidence, skill-sets, and encouragement our students our students need to succeed in college and beyond. Students are encrouaged to further develop by joining athletic teams, clubs and groups. We encourage students to push beyond their known boundaries, regardless of knowledge or ability.

"My kids have thrived at this school and have been afforded amazing opportunities to grow, not only as students, but also as human beings. The environment encourages individuality, supports different cultures and backgrounds, and prepares its students for future success by offering a real-life sampling of what they will encounter in college and beyond."
