WHAT SETS US APART

Thriving All Around

WHAT SETS US APART

Whole Child Approach

We include activities like chess, debate, soccer, and performing arts into our day and we offer field studies to connect the classroom curriculum to real-world experiences.

WHAT SETS US APART

Chess

Chess allows students to tackle the rules of the game as they think strategically, make smart decisions, and build confidence.

WHAT SETS US APART

The Arts

Through classes in visual arts, dance, music, and theater, students express themselves, expand their imaginations, and develop their voices through the arts. 

Success Academy applications for the 2022-2023 school year are now open.

WHAT SETS US APART

Sports

Soccer starts in kindergarten helping students hone basic motor skills and learn the rules of the game. Basketball helps students learn collaboration while develop athletic skills. 

WHAT SETS US APART

Field Studies

Through visits to farms, museums, and theaters, students make connections between classroom learning and the real world, immersing themselves in diverse environments.
