Learning support offered

We focus on two main questions in our support services:

1. What do we do when a student does not understand the content?
2. What do we do when a student already knows it?

These guide the learning support services as we help students that need help to catch up, or push forward into advanced learning.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

Advanced placement courses in high school offer students a wide range of academic rigor. The Catalyst project offers high school students a chance to pursue a topic of their choice and build a project around that special interest. Additionally, the high school offers a full-time advanced experience program called, Quest. This immersive experience gives students a chance to explore topics of interest more deeply than through the traditional curriculum.
