Prepare for life

Not just for high school


Your child's education starts here.

Our mission is bold and clear. Like other schools, we have excellent academic programs, outstanding facilities, invested parents, and dedicated teachers. But, we also have distinctive qualities. We are committed to excellent academics, character education, and we gather daily in chapel to celebrate and affirm the importance of community.  

We don’t simply post inspirational banners around the school.  Chapel, character education, and community are the defining characteristics of our culture, which enhance and augment our rigorous academics.

    Yesterday, I was in our weekly program meeting.  (The admin team gathers to talk about the week ahead and plan for any critical issues.)  During the discussion, I was asked a question, and I was not paying attention.  I owned my lack of focus and shared the reason for my distraction.  I was multitasking—preparing for my class, and, wait for it…reading an article about active listening.
