Outstanding Preparation

We ensure our students know their options and have prepared for the tests and interviews, as well as for the academic, leadership and service requirements sought by the top high schools.

On average, 97% of our students go on to leading private schools such as Flintridge Prep, La Salle, Westridge, Loyola, Mayfield, Flintridge Sacred Heart, Maranatha, St. Francis, Polytechnic, Webb and more. The remaining three percent often choose to enroll at excellent area public schools, with the finest reputations in the state, such as San Marino or Arcadia.

Our rigorous middle school academic program prepares students from the start. In addition to comprehensive academic content, the program emphasizes strong writing, presentation, critical thinking and problem solving skills. 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, our seventh grade families receive 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.
