Frequently Asked Questions

What activities will be offered?

This is not be your typical pre-k – 4 experience. The primary school environment provides students with a space to create, explore, and discover. With the resources of a highly successful state-of-the-art middle and high school just over a mile away, we utilize the services of the entire school faculty and staff to help with explorations in language, music, chorus, drama, art, nature, and technology.

What interaction do the younger students have with older students?

Since our pre-k through 4th grades are be housed in a satellite location, all interaction is planned, structured and supervised with a goal in mind. We coordinate an expanded “Big Brother” program, full school masses, tutoring opportunities with our upperclassmen, and mentoring opportunities throughout the year.

How large are the classes?

Our class sizes are 20 students in pre-k, 24 in kindergarten, and 25 in grades 1-4.

Do you offer an accelerated curriculum?

The advanced academic rigor in our primary school vertically aligns with the curriculum already present in grades 5 through 12.
