As students grow, we strive to provide an academic program which is both developmentally appropriate and challenging to the intellectual capabilities of all of our students. We are aware of the accommodations needed for our students and address these needs by teaching to and making students aware of their learning styles.
In the Upper School, we strive to teach our students the skills necessary for successful learning and living as young adults. These skill areas include: critical thinking skills; study habits; group dynamics; social interaction and awareness; and active community involvement/service.
We believe that students have the capability to engage in positive decision-making and are able to accept responsibility for those decisions. Therefore, we encourage students to increase their sense of discipline, responsibility and motivation. Our goal is to assist and guide students in the tasks which promote development of self-confidence, self-esteem, and the realization of self-efficacy.
