Give your child the education that provides lessons that last a lifetime, connections that count for social and emotional growth, and opportunities that overflow expanding their intellect from year-to-year.

We are an independent, non-denominational, private, college preparatory school for pre-kindergarten through grade 12 students.

We embrace our diverse student body and believe in offering a well-rounded education in academics, athletics, and the arts. Many of our students receive national recognition in one or more areas and our alumni often credit their experiences here for their success in college and life.
