Grades 9–12

The Upper School provides a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum that prepares students to excel at the collegiate level and beyond. As passionate as our faculty members are about their subject matter, they are even more dedicated to working with students and engaging them in the process of being independent learners.

Our curriculum, which extends beyond the classroom, focuses on the development of accomplished, well-rounded citizens.
"As state-of-the-art as our learning environment is, the reason we are ready to take this next step (attend college) is because of the time and talents of our teachers. The teachers are amazing people. They come early, stay late, and they make themselves constantly available to help us succeed."
~Mitch Marois, Class of 2010 Baccalaureate Address
