As an intentionally small school, we have a deep understanding of how boys learn best. Our teachers will form a relationship with you and your family that will allow them to truly know you. How you think, what you feel , what your interests are.
You will be in a small homeroom and even smaller core academic classes, giving you an educational experience that will challenge and inspire you. You will have physical education five days a week and ample recess and outdoor time, as well as movement built into your lessons. You will be active, engaged and challenged every day.
Fact: boys learn best by doing. Our pedagogy is centered on hands-on experiential learning that appeals to all senses, involves action and movement and produces tangible outcomes. We raise trout to learn about ecosystems; we learn to use a compass and a map for orienteering; we search for acute and obtuse angles to photograph. We ensure every boy’s mastery of foundational concepts in reading, language arts and mathematics by having subject specialists collaborate with each classroom teacher, which allows for even individualized learning.
