Our UPPER SCHOOL offers programs of study for high school students who have completed grades 9-12. As an UPPER SCHOOL student, you have the freedom to design your own academic curriculum. This is your chance to sharpen certain skills, dig deeper into a favorite topic or pursue something totally new. You can choose three classes from a diverse offering of courses in several different disciplines, plus a sport and optional SAT preparation. UPPER SCHOOL students can also apply to The Charles J. Hamm '55 Leadership Program where students learn about leadership and practice core leadership skills like public speaking, goal setting, conflict resolution and group facilitation.


It’s easy. We have rolling admissions.
