Students in the Upper School (Grades 9-12) continue to build on the sequence of learning established in the earlier grades. Responsible citizenship is expected and preparation for college emphasized. Our College Counseling Program assists students and parents with college exploration, decision making and the application process. The academic program combines a broad liberal arts base with opportunities for specialization and enrichment. Course requirements emphasize skills in analysis, problem solving, and communication. Emphasis is placed not only on the material being presented in each class but also on study habits and a healthy work ethic. Our teachers enhance their small classes through personal interest in their students and individualized attention whenever needed. Honors and Advanced Placement courses are available to qualified students. In addition, the Upper School offers a wide range of student activities to facilitate personal growth.
AP courses follow the syllabi of the College Entrance Examination Board. Students are selected for AP courses based on teacher recommendations, test scores, and past performance. All students taking AP courses take the College Board AP exam in May.
