The Academy high school provides a small learning community where students are engaged as thinkers and learners. Students are provided with opportunities to pursue their passions and grow their character. Our faculty not only attends to what our students want to do, but who they want to be.

The Academy welcomed its augural 9th grade class in the fall of 2016. We will add an additional grade each year thereafter until the school serves 9th through 12th grade.

We are currently accepting applications for 9th and 10th grade students for the Fall of 2017-2018.
