Academics

 

     

Our well-rounded curriculum focuses on fundamental skills for learning in mathematics, science, history, literature, languages, and the arts.  Students improve and gain confidence as readers, writers, and public speakers. Personal attention is paramount.  In classes of typically five or six students, boys find it easier to participate in discussions freely and without pressure.

Each student’s faculty advisor meets with him briefly almost every school day to monitor and encourage him and to keep his parents informed about school matters.  Teachers provide tutorial sessions at the end of each class day, and “dorm parents” monitor study time on Sunday through Thursday evenings.  Boys who study hard can earn privileges and commendations.  Boys who choose not to try may be required to catch up during what would otherwise be their free time.  Our emphasis is on effort and progress.
