On standardized tests, our students consistently score competitively with nationwide private school norms.
There are a variety of programs to support our powerful high school admissions record. In addition to excellent academic preparation from preschool through eighth grade, each seventh grade family receives individual high school admissions counseling to help them understand their options and how to prepare and apply to high schools. Students are also required to take an interview preparation class, attend high school tours, and meet with high school admissions directors on our campus.
