Academics

A Prep Education

Student-centered, active inquiry characterizes our curriculum, which covers a breadth and depth of study across six academic departments, the arts, athletics and community service.  The required core subjects develop the disciplines and skills central to a liberal education.  Elective courses stimulate students to follow their passions.

Students take charge of their own learning in discussion-based classrooms.  Small classes (average class size is thirteen) engender a mentorship approach to learning, and students learn to communicate confidently and comfortably with faculty.  Each department has designed its curriculum to engage, excite and educate.
