Social emotional learning is infused throughout cross-curricular instruction. A school family culture is built through consistent modeling of routines, rituals and structures. The school family increases connections between adults and children at all levels, ensuring optimal development and learning for all.
The High School program is opening in Fall 2023, giving students opportunities to travel globally for community service, pursue and create their passions, and participate in a global sports development program for student athletes.
