Educating children is a great responsibility and privilege in equal measure. To make it work, we need to put a lot in. This begins with seeding the desire for lifelong learning in every student. Then we instill a respect for diversity, an appreciation for what it takes to be a global citizen, and bring out the skills to both follow and lead.

Ultimately, our students gain the self-confidence to achieve academic and personal success through:

  • The International Baccalaureate Diploma
  • Advanced Placement International Diploma
  • Advanced Placement Capstone Diploma
  • Advanced Placement courses
  • US High School Diploma.

We are proud that our graduates attend the university of their choice anywhere in the world.

Our goal is for every student to finally outgrow us. We want them to become ready and able to take the next step, secure in the knowledge of who they are, and what they do best. Ours is the care in preparation. Theirs is to go out and make a difference.
