Exceptional Students, Educators & Experiences

It all starts with our students...

From Nursery through Grade 12, we nurture a student body that celebrates inquisitiveness and integrity and applauds self-confidence. We foster the journey for children to become responsible, independent, and hard-working thinkers and learners. Paired with the region’s best faculty and staff, this combination has resulted in exceptional experiences for nearly a century.

Selecting a school can be one of the most important and trying decisions a family can make, so our goal is to remove the complexity and stress. Our open, friendly admissions process promotes a thoughtful, mutual exploration of interests and philosophies, ensuring a natural fit for applicants, families and the current student body.

What do we seek in potential students? Diversity of backgrounds. Unique talents. A desire to reach their potential. A curiosity about the world around them, and how they can make a difference. A shared sense of values to better our school and the community.

We would love to share more. Please consider attending one of our upcoming events and open houses, learn more online, or simply contact us to ask questions or schedule a private tour.
