The High School curriculum follows the development of the student with their ability to move from absolute to abstract thought and reasoning. We offer a liberal arts education, consciously aimed to nurture and encourage adolescent ideals. The high school experience aims to balance the students’ academic needs with their longing to find meaning in the world.
