Our modular schedule provides a flexible approach to learning. The schedule runs four courses at a time and changes every nine weeks. This allows our students more choice of courses over their four years. It also helps our students to focus their energy on fewer courses at any one time.

Relationships are Foundational

Faculty Connection

As a school of inquiry, innovation, and impact we know the most important relationship in school is the one created between a teacher and student. We believe that to design a better world requires teachers and students to see themselves as learners, connectors, networkers, and designers. When and how we connect is key.
