Secondary School Placement

Life After Graduation

The transition to secondary school is a critical time. We take pride in preparing our students for the next steps in their academic career. 
Our personalized, highly effective approach to secondary school placement begins in Grade 7. We work with each family toward the goal of finding the best match for each student's strengths. We consider the whole child—academics, social, athletics, arts, and their personal interests.

Having provided our Upper Schoolers with leadership opportunities ranging from community service to public speaking and team-building, our students matriculate to some of the best schools in the country, extraordinarily well prepared for the next critical phase of their lives.

We’ve sent our graduates to over 150 schools throughout the US and Europe.
