In addition to rounding out academic studies in literature, mathematics, writing, science, history and government, Upper School students get practical understanding and experience in the subjects of leadership, integrity, and logic, as well as in management and organizational structure.
Upper School students receive individual academic programs tailored to their academic needs as well as their goals and interests. The curriculum encourages students to apply the knowledge they’re gaining to real life situations, building critical thinking and problem-solving skills, rather than emphasizing memorization of facts or time spent in class. Students are required to demonstrate proficiency in each course of study before moving on to the next course or subject.
By Form 7 (10th-11th grade), students select one of four major areas to study more intensively – Science & Technology, Humanities, Business or Fine Arts – and then focus on academic study and practical experience related to that area in addition to the standard program of required core courses.
