Mission & Vision


Our mission is to provide challenging academics in a diverse environment, drawing on the Quaker testimonies, or values, of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship to empower our students to go out into the world with conscience, conviction and compassion.


We believe that all students have within themselves unique capacities for learning and achievement. The learning program provides opportunities for students to achieve their highest academic levels. In a supportive learning environment, students develop their capacities through independent thought, service and responsible action, thereby fostering lifelong learning, self confidence and respect for others. We provide a caring, cooperative atmosphere encouraging students to support each other as equals, and discourage that which would set one student above another.

We believe that education should address the range of human development—intellectual, social, physical and spiritual. We seek to meet each child at her or his developmental level and challenge that child to discover the full range of his/her/their abilities.

Academic excellence is our ultimate goal. Our curricula are designed to teach fundamental concepts and skills, using materials and methods that begin simply and grow in intellectual complexity and challenges for the students as they mature in years.
