  • The Nursery through Grade 8 school model best serves students.
  • Academic excellence and happy children belong together.
  • School must challenge students but also let kids be kids. 
  • It's our job to impart a spirit of community, achievement, character, creativity, adventure, and faith.
  • It's our privilege to empower children to stride confidently into the world, delight in it, and contribute to it.
