Since our founding in 1969, The Academy has remained steadfast in our commitment to providing a rich and rigorous education for our students and to creating a warm and nurturing environment in which they can explore their passions and expand their intellectual horizons. The Academy’s mission is to develop thoughtful, ambitious, and deep learners. We honor our students’ individuality while cultivat...ing their sense of integrity, their respect for others, and their commitment to service in a global society. We are proud to be an academic community in which every member--faculty, staff, student, and family--feels galvanized to explore, create, and investigate: to take intellectual risks and to trust that they will be supported in that risk-taking. Our 6:1 student-to-teacher ratio, our expert teachers, and our atmosphere of high expectations confirm our commitment to deep and meaningful learning for each student.
