Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Rooted in the Dominican tradition of prayer, study, community and service, we are committed to the formation of youth with special emphasis on their ethical development. The accredited college-preparatory curriculum is rigorous, and we are the only high school in the US with a 4-year Bioethics Curriculum. Three levels of study – Academic, Advanced, and Honors/AP - are offered in each of the core disciplines, challenging students at the appropriate level in various subjects.
