Scholarship that blends tradition and innovation
As scholars, we offer a rigorous and cohesive college prep curriculum that is also forward-thinking and innovative.

Citizenship in a real-world context
As citizens, we offer a curriculum focused on real-world knowledge and engagement that puts learning in the context of our school, our city, our state, our country, and our world.
