Middle School — grades six through eight — is a magical and pivotal (dare we say sometimes even a little overwhelming?) period of transformation. That’s why we create a learning environment that nurtures your unique academic, social, emotional, and physical growth—while preparing you to confidently meet your future. You’ll discover your voice and your peers, develop healthy habits, undergo a lot of personal growth, and learn a whole lot along the way.
You’re an Upper Schooler and ready to take the world by the horns. We’ll support you during this significant transition to young adulthood with a highly interactive and collaborative curriculum designed to inspire deep, critical inquiry about the world and your role within it.

You’ll put learning into practice both on and off campus—broadening your horizons and diving deep into your interests—to emerge well-prepared for college and beyond.
