The Upper School program stretches students intellectually, encourages deep exploration of areas of passion, and cultivates a meaningful connection with the school community. Every mountain top, every country, and every moment offers an opportunity to prepare our students for a world in which they will collaborate, grow, and challenge themselves.
We are more than a college preparatory school—we offer students the opportunity to push themselves academically, physically, and mentally everyday. Whether they are solving a challenging problem in physics, learning to navigate using a topographic map, or engaging in conversation with their homestay family in Nepal, our students learn about themselves, the value of their engagement with others, and the importance of moving beyond their comfort zone. Students gain the ability to be independent thinkers, to ask questions that move the conversation beyond a typical discussion, and to flourish as students of life. We prepare our students for college life and life beyond.
