The Upper School stimulates the academic, ethical, interpersonal, and physical growth of students through its challenging college preparatory curriculum.
Students are encouraged to take intellectual risks, make responsible decisions, and embrace leadership opportunities.
Students meet graduation requirements in history and social studies, English, science, mathematics, world languages, and the arts. The Upper School offers both Advanced Placement and Advanced Topics courses, which are available after the Freshman year. A strong extracurricular program, developed by faculty and students, provides sports teams, clubs, and organizations for the entire student body. A service learning program encourages students to become active and caring members of their communities. College counseling occurs throughout grades 9-12.
Please see our Upper School Course Catalog for the most current course offerings, information on advanced topics and advanced placement courses, and information about graduation requirements.
Signature Learning Experiences result in so much more than well-executed presentations or research papers—they set the stage for moments of inspiration, new ideas, and excitement for learning. I’ve seen the moment a new connection is made—the moment the light bulb clicks on—and it’s magic.
