Mission and Philosophy

As a non-profit school, we put children first.


Our mission is to combine joy in learning with excellence in education.

We believe that students thrive in a school where intellectual stimulation is high and where individual attention is given in a warm, friendly, and nurturing environment.

We offer a program of strong academics combined with a focused development of study skills. Through a program that emphasizes hands-on, applications-based learning, we seek to involve each student in an active process of discovery, invention, problem-solving, and mastery. The curriculum is designed for students working at or above grade level in all subjects.

Kids Come First

Our independence from government management, religious affiliation, and for-profit ownership allows us to focus our full attention and resources on what matters most – the education of our students.

Everything we do here is based on a simple truth – children are naturally curious individual who love to learn – especially in a fun, challenging, student-centric environment like ours, where they feel safe and respected.
