About this school

Runnels School is an independent, non-sectarian, co-educational, nonprofit institution whose purpose is to provide a college preparatory program of studies to students from age 2 through grade 12. We believe that what happens to us in youth sets a pattern for the way we choose to live the rest of our lives. Runnels helps students make the most of this time, and the best of themselves.
