Many facets of school life are integrated into our unique educational experience, which encompasses classes, activities, sports and community service.
Classes or clubs are routinely offered after school, such as Chess Club, Cooking Class, Yearbook Club, Spelling Bee Club, Drumming Circle, Weekly Reader, Yoga, and Performing Arts. These classes are independent of the After-School program and are usually taught by a faculty member. Students may sign up for a single class or a series of classes as they are announced. Fees vary depending on the class.
Our students participate in Destination Imagination (DI), an annual competition with students from 50 states and over 30 countries; DI offers teams of students open-ended challenges each year to work on. Teams must create solutions that are imaginative, original, divergent, and ingenious! The program promotes leadership skills, teamwork, character development, and initiative. Over the years our student teams have placed among the top three in state championships.
Our athletic program focuses on skill development, agility, stamina, and teamwork. All our students are encouraged to participate; emphasis is placed on each student achieving his/her potential in the context of teamwork. Moreover, as a small school, every student gets a chance to participate and represent the school. When we win, it is a triumph of individual effort.
Service is a centerpiece of our program. All classes participate in community service projects. The entire school engages in Stewardship Day activities honoring our environment. During the year Lower School students engage in projects that address the needs of local families. Middle students are devoted to addressing the emergent needs of the local community, such as hunger. High School students have participated in global service projects in Latin America.
