A Rigorous Academic Program

The Clairbourn model of education includes a rigorous curriculum and inspired teaching. Our students acquire essential 21st-century skills and intellectual habits of mind that lead to success in school and in life. At all grade levels, small classes are designed to motivate, engage, and support students to reach high levels of achievement. Learning is active and teaching is a dynamic blend of both traditional and innovative methods. A wide variety of co-curricular programs allow students to expand their learning well beyond the core curriculum. 
Clairbourn has a comprehensive private school academic program comprised of three sequential, interlocking segments:
Our curriculum is designed to be rigorous, intellectually challenging, and relevant to each student’s academic and personal growth. The program provides an educational experience that prepares our graduates with the content knowledge and skills, intellectual habits of mind, and values-based ethical framework that open the doors for acceptance to excellent independent high schools.
