Our program is a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum. It is interdisciplinary from the earliest grades, meaning we train our students to see connections between the various disciplines (e.g. between literature, history and art but also between science, mathematics, and the humanities—how do the ways of thinking in each discipline compare and how are they different?). It is integrative, meaning throughout the program, a Christian world-view—i.e. exploring each subject from a biblical perspective of truth, knowledge and understanding—is brought to bear on the material, and students are challenged to apply that world-view to a variety of disciplines and topics, culminating in their senior thesis and internship project. It builds foundational skills of reading, writing, and computation in the Lower School, allows our students to continue practicing and applying those skills to the major subject areas in the Middle School and finally has students master a wide-ranging curriculum in the Upper School.
