Preparing for a life of impact and meaning

Challenging and meaningful course offerings give Upper School students the opportunity to build a formidable foundation of knowledge, skills, and habits of mind, while taking advanced coursework, pursuing specialized interests, and preparing to lead lives of wellbeing and meaningful engagement, locally, nationally, and globally, no matter where their paths lead.

Our talented and dedicated Upper School teachers are distinguished and committed scholars who guide our students to push their boundaries and strive academically, artistically, and athletically.
