A kindergarten through ninth grade boarding and day school preparing students to live a life of integrity, joy, and significance.
We’re a close-knit, international community rooting for each other in the classroom and on the athletic fields. We eat local food and study many languages. We know that our differences (and our apples) make us stronger.
And play instruments, learn to swim, and study nature outside. Our faculty brings out the best in our students and helps them discover their passions.
We prioritize hard work and joyful play. After tackling rigorous academics in the classroom, our students and teachers sprint to the lawn for games of imagination and endurance.
Leave your phone at the door. Our innovative, forward-looking faculty helps students develop strong social skills and preparedness for the future. We converse without distraction.
