Our community is focused on God’s great love for us and for our neighbors. Our students practice different faith traditions and come from different faith communities, but all of our work, play, and worship reflects our understanding that God loves us and has created us for a purpose.
Our students benefit from working alongside students, staff, and faculty members who represent and reflect the world around them. Our student body is diverse, consisting of individuals and families from a variety of cultural, ethnic, and economic backgrounds.
Our IB curriculum provides a global perspective that teaches students intercultural understanding and respect, which builds a better, more peaceful world. Regular travel – in our city and around the world – ensures our students have the intellectual, emotional, and social skills needed to live, learn, and work in a global world.
