Academic Life

Grade 9 – Grade 12

High School is an important time in a student's life. During this time, they are making lifelong friendships, discovering their talents, learning more advanced material, and preparing themselves for the next chapter of their lives.

Grade 9 is the beginning of a four-year High School Program that focuses on success in college and in life.  Abstract reasoning and critical thinking skills are emphasized in all disciplines. Our classes include a broad base of traditional academic subjects and reflect the knowledge that universities require.
