Our faculty are experts at offering each individual the right level of challenge and support. As a result, our students build a strong sense of themselves and embody our core values of excellence, responsibility, caring, honesty, respect, and joy. Our eighth grade graduates go on to the high schools of their choosing, where they are embraced as confident self-advocates and leaders in their new school communities.

in their own words

  • It is very important for me to be in an environment where I feel fully accepted and supported because I am excited to learn. I enjoy getting to talk about deep and complex topics like religion, identity, and race to better understand people's differences and grow to become a better person.
