We develop critical thinkers, doers and explorers through innovative, engaging instruction in an inclusive and supportive learning community.
Innovative learning for a changing world
We equip students to chart their unique paths to success by providing an educational experience based on the following principles:
An excellent, broad-based educational foundation that allows students to discover their passions and become well-rounded individuals
A supportive, warm and caring environment that encourages students to view pursuits as learning experiences and expand personal horizons
A close partnership between the student, faculty and parents that results in optimal student outcomes
A strong value system that grounds student decision-making in honor, integrity and social responsibility
Engaging all members of our community in fostering student success results in innovation and excellence
These principles guide our portrait of a graduate and our approach to implementing our mission.
