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.

We are currently accepting applications for students entering 9th through 12th grade for the 2019-2020 school year. Applications for the current school year are accepting on a rolling-basis, as space permits.
