The mission of our elementary classes is twofold, focusing on both the development of the student and the whole child.

Five Learning Outcomes We Instill in Our Students

Our Curriculum

Our elementary, middle school, and high school programs are project-based and cross-curricular with a focus on hands-on learning. This means that we avoid students sitting idly listening to a teacher as much as possible.


Students are actively engaged in a real-world project that calls on their knowledge and skills from multiple subjects. This fosters collaboration, problem-solving, and critical thinking while boosting learning and making it much more interesting, enjoyable, and applicable outside of school.
