Our approach to middle school focuses on the uniqueness of each individual.

We recognize that easing the transition between each division translates to greater confidence and success in and out of the classroom. We offer a dedicated team, curriculum, and spaces to meet the academic, developmental, and social needs of each student.

  • An age-appropriate overnight retreat.
