  • Monday-Thursday: 8:45 a.m. – 3:45 p.m.

Our year-round schedule is designed to provide our students with a combination of academic and enrichment opportunities, inside and outside of the classroom, over the entire year.

Our explorations segments during the summer and winter will enable students to pursue their unique interests in immersive 1-3 week programs.

In the eleventh and twelfth grade, students will have dedicated blocks for internships and work-based learning.

There will be four multi-week breaks throughout the year, in addition to school holidays.
