  • Primary Program: In the elementary years, grades 1–4, students benefit from the support of our unique two-teacher model as they make significant connections between their various subjects. 
  • Middle School Program: Students in grades 5–8 learn to actively use their knowledge as a tool as they take all three sciences (biology, chemistry, and physics), logic, economics, and a foreign language course.
  • High School Program: Students in grades 9–12 are prepared to enter the world's best colleges through a daily college counseling class, as well as university-level capstone courses and independent research.
