From starting a small business to finding solutions to a United Nations Sustainability Goal, upper schoolers put their understanding into practice and develop as thoughtful leaders, skilled communicators, and creative problem solvers. Our core value of LOVE and its attributes–Limitless potential; Overcome obstacles; Value God, ourselves, and others; Embrace excellence–are the foundation of all we do.
