The Early Childhood Education program is a mixed age, play-based kindergarten where imagination and exploration create a foundation for learning in your child.
The Lower School curriculum takes your child from the early age of imagination and imitation to a rich immersion in world cultures, with academic learning embedded in an artistic context.
The Middle School curriculum builds on the foundation of strong academics and includes outdoor education experiences, community service opportunities, social/emotional learning, a practical arts program, and an inclusive athletics program where all are welcome to participate regardless of skill level.
The High School curriculum supports the development of students with their ability to move from absolute to abstract thought and reasoning. The high school pedagogy is aimed at helping each student to discover meaning and their own unique place in the world.
