Our unique, thoughtfully designed middle school program integrates Montessori pedagogy with developing trends in the latest educational research.
Our program facilitates the adolescents' meaningful connection to the world. Students work through five curriculum cycles, each with a unique focus and in-depth approach featuring group projects, independent research, and critical thinking activities. It fosters each student's creation of a healthy, holistic and strong sense of self, preparing them both academically and socially for high school and beyond.
Students create their own opportunities to take action through community service projects. They become better problem solvers, gain a greater sense of responsibility and learn that their actions can make a difference.
Students develop organizational skills—time management, goal setting, note-taking, prioritization, and more—that prepare them for success.
Our program meets the unique needs of adolescents with the ultimate goal of preparation for life.
