The mission is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who become active, lifelong learners through a shared academic and community service experience.
The program, a highly academic, rigorous course of study focuses on conceptual learning, critical thinking and presentation skills (written and oral).

The Program requirements include English, World Language, History, Experimental Sciences, math, theory of Knowledge and elective choices. Students also complete the "CAS" component--(Creativity, Activity and Service).
