Every aspect of our academic program — from our schedule to our curriculum — is tailored to meet our students where they are and challenge them to go above and beyond so they graduate ready to pursue their passions.

Focused Study

By approaching only two subjects each term in a four-term academic year, our students are able to truly concentrate on the topics before them.

Deeper Learning

Our block approach allows students to spend several hours a day on each subject, giving them a chance to explore critical questions and deepen their understanding of complex topics.


Very Small Classes

We average only eight students a class – a structure that encourages classroom discussion rather than lectures and collaboration over competition.

City-Wide Experiences

We use DC as our classroom, getting out into the city frequently to complement and enhance our academic work.
