Self-Directed Learning

Our school projects allow for flexible pacing as students progress through our challenging college-prep curriculum. Teachers support and coach students as they solve problems, discover their learning styles, and demonstrate their knowledge.

Teachers as Mentors

Every student has a dedicated teacher mentor who guides and advises them and their family through their school experience. Students are part of the same mentoring group through graduation where they set goals, share successes and struggles, and build lasting relationships.
