Our Approach

We prepare students for college success with the following approach:

Three Principles

These principles guide our work every day:

  1. Creating a community that is built upon and meaningful relationships
  2. Being surgical in our approach to differentiation of instruction and support of all students and team members
  3. Setting and exceed high expectations for academic growth and character development for all students, in preparation for success in college and beyond

Small School

Grade-level cohorts with fewer than 100 students allow students to feel known and cared for. Our focus is on a sense of community and relationship building with families and students.

High Expectations

Rigorous, differentiated, college-preparatory coursework from K-12. Advanced Placement and real college courses for all juniors and seniors.

More Time On Task

Longer school days than traditional schools. Weekend sessions and summer school for students who are struggling.

Effective Instruction

World-class teachers with clear expectations and the support they need to continuously improve

14:1 Student-Teacher Ratio

Pre-K through 2nd grade students benefit from a co-teacher model: two teachers support classroom instruction the entire school day.

Daily Tutoring

From 3rd grade through high school, students receive tutoring built into their daily school day schedule. Learn More About the Americorps Tutoring Program
