The classical education we offer extends beyond the classroom. We encourage our students to engage in a variety of extracurricular activities, from sports to arts to community service. These activities are not just pastimes; they are integral to our educational philosophy, providing students with opportunities to develop their talents, leadership skills, and sense of civic responsibility. 

As a college preparatory school, our focus is on equipping students with the knowledge, skills, and virtues necessary for success in higher education and their future careers.
