The Classical model - Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric - is what atttracted us in the first place and, after having our son in the program from 8th through 12th grade, is still the most compelling feature. This educational approach, more popular in the East and based on proven educational programs from the 17th through 19th Century, creates a student who is both better informed and better able to deal with what life will throw him. While including drama, music, sports as both classroom and extra-curricular programs, the core of the school is still academics. Even so, our son is moving into a career in drama based on what hs's learned here, having been accepted into two colleges thus far, including a conservatory (AMDA). Parental involvement is not only encouraged, it's required. Regular parent forums, website tracking of student progress, academic alerts, teacher conferences, etc. are all part of the package.
