The Upper School curriculum prepares students to achieve their college goals and be successful at the most selective colleges and universities in the nation. In addition to the mastery of knowledge, the program cultivates a love of learning and character development. It also equips students with the learning skills needed for lifelong intellectual growth, achievement, and personal satisfaction.

Designed to challenge students to fulfill their academic and personal potential, the curriculum is rigorous, providing Advanced Placement, Honors and College Preparatory Courses in the verbal disciplines (English, history, and world languages) and the analytical/quantitative disciplines (mathematics, science and computer Science). Additional courses are offered in the aesthetic disciplines (fine and performing arts), and physical education (wellness, life management skills, and personal fitness).
The academic and college counseling program is both strategic and personal. Working closely with the Academic Dean and Heads of College Counseling, each student entering the Upper School develops an academic plan that is carefully designed to achieve long-term goals. Academic plans may vary according to the strengths and interests of individual students. On-going academic advising takes place at each grade level and throughout the school year. Our mutual goal is to craft an academic program that is both challenging and realistic so that every student has excellent college options, ideally suited to career goals and personal interests.
