Program of Study
Our college preparatory curriculum is predicated on the belief that certain abilities are of major importance: to reason carefully and logically, to think creatively and sensitively, and to communicate precisely and articulately. The program seeks to encourage curiosity, openness, and the joy of discovery that leads to a lifelong enthusiasm for learning.
