Preparation for college is a primary objective of the Secondary program, and the intellectual rigor and variety of opportunities for all students provide a foundation for future academic success.
Personal attention through small classes insures that students are challenged appropriately and guided in their work.
Extra-help periods are built into the daily schedule, and teachers also make themselves available outside class via phone, email, or appointments.
