We believe the sky’s no limit.

We set the bar high, encouraging students to take intellectual risks and step beyond their comfort zones. Our well-crafted academic program builds each year, giving students a succession of skills and experiences that challenge and inspire them. We draw on a timeless approach to academics that prepares students for entry to competitive secondary schools, and helps them cultivate a joyful life of meaning and consequence.

Our setting, steeped in history and surrounded by nature, lends itself to impassioned teaching. Dedicated teachers bring lessons to life beyond the classroom, infusing each day with creativity and inventiveness. Experiential learning allows our students to put into practice what they’ve learned on the page. And our global diversity introduces students to other cultures from a young age and cultivates a sense of interconnection with a broader community, both here in the Pioneer Valley and all over the world.

Students benefit from one-on-one attention in small classes, and they form supportive relationships with their peers and teachers. Our goal is to foster a love of reading, a curiosity about the natural world, and strong problem-solving abilities. While our students pursue knowledge, they also develop self-awareness, confidence, and resilience—life skills that will take them anywhere they dream to go.
