In addition to core subject areas, all students are required to take one year of Latin and at least two years of an additional foreign language. Our rich and varied curriculum — which includes over 70 courses in the integrated humanities, science, math, language, and arts — is designed to move students beyond a mastery of fundamental skills toward the rewards of inquiry, initiative, and reflection.
Class periods are 75 minutes long, allowing for deeper learning and engagement. Students gain knowledge and acquire core competencies by grappling with complex questions that lead to sustained inquiry, critique and revision, and, ultimately, self-assessment and reflection.
