The Upper School:
- Challenges students academically in preparation for the rigors of university education and the pursuit of being a lifelong learner.
- Develops the ability to think critically, become problem solvers, and increase capacity toward mature decision making.
- Helps students develop their individual gifts and talents in realization of the potential given to them by God.
- We teach individuals.
- Community is vital in developing the whole student.
