LOWER SCHOOL (Grades 1 to 3)
In the Lower School (Grades 1-3), focus on building the foundations for academic mastery begins. A multi-sensory approach is used at each grade level to accommodate all types of learners. Students are actively involved in thinking skills, problem-solving strategies and real life applications to enable them a thorough understanding of academics and its relationship to the world. A systematic program is used for reading instruction, balancing phonics and authentic literature with explicit skills instruction.
There are six learning areas in the Lower School, namely:
The Lower School years provide a strong foundation for future academic and social growth. We are dedicated to providing an environment in which students explore and research ideas, develop higher level thinking skills, and become independent, self-directed, joyful learners.
MIDDLE SCHOOL (Grades 4-6)
The Middle School years (Grades 4-6) are focused on challenging young people, building their confidence and preparing them for the rigorous demands of high school.

JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL (Grades 7-10)
In Junior High School, the goal of academic proficiency exists side-by-side with the humane practice of mutual caring, respect for the dignity of every individual, and the nurturing of each person's self-esteem. We begin with high expectations for all of our students. We know that they are capable of excellence and together with parents, teachers, students, administrators and the community, we have created programs and policies that support and encourage students to reach higher, to try harder, and to achieve more than would otherwise be possible. There are eight learning areas in Junior High, namely:
While academic achievements will vary because of differences in abilities and interests, all students are expected to work hard, complete tasks, and participate fully in the academic program. The faculty provides the guidance as each student seeks his or her own intellectual and personal maturity.
SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL (Grades 11-12)
The program for Senior High School consists of a core curriculum that prepares students for college and career pathways for employment or engaging in a profitable enterprise after high school. In Grade 11, the student will spend more time studying core subjects while in Grade 12, more time will be spent on internship or immersion.
