English

Engage with language.

We believe that language is the key to gaining self-knowledge and participating in community. We focus on developing in students the skills of expression, listening and understanding.

Our writing program invites you to start with personal narratives. As you find your confidence and voice, you’ll move to more complex essays, journalistic profiles and literary analyses.

Seniors choose from more than 50 electives, including author immersions (more than 20, from Milton to Morrison) and genre-based courses.
