Fueling students’ IQ and EQ 

Starting in preschool, students are wholly supported by a tight-knit school community as they achieve at the highest levels while developing a lifelong love of learning through challenging academics and character development.


A shared growth mindset

contributes to a strengths-based, experiential approach to learning. Students are known and loved by their teachers who meet them where they are to develop their unique strengths and challenge them in their areas of growth.


Inward, outward, and upward growth

From day one through graduation, students are given the freedom to explore—topics of interest, themselves, and the world. Through self-directed learning, emergent curriculum, and adventure experiences, their curiosity is nourished and their passions are uncovered.
