Redefining Education for a New Era

We are grounded in a rigorous college preparatory framework, but we go much further. We are multidisciplinary and cutting-edge, giving students the ability to ask the hard questions, and the tools to answer them. We are technologically sophisticated, but we recognize the limitations of technology, so we teach critical thinking above all else—because this is the foundation of true learning. We are deeply humanistic, treating every student with profound respect and care. And we are a joyful, inclusive, vibrant community—where students actually love to come to school every day.

Times are changing, and our students are ready to meet, embrace, and create this change.  

We encourage you to explore our curriculum and signature programs, and the way the Guild & Commons buildings have expanded our capacities across all of our programming.
