Upper Campus: Grades 4-8

Our primary focus at the Upper Campus is to prepare students for acceptance to high school and to ensure that they acquire the knowledge and skillset to successfully meet its demands. Building on our goal at the Lower Campus to create lifelong learners, our Upper Campus commits to maintaining the highest standards of excellence to all students.
