An impressive 99% of our graduates receive college admission, often to highly-selective, top-tier schools. Forty-one percent will attend highly selective colleges as defined by schools that admit 30% or less of the students who apply.

The formation of spiritual leadership, empathy and a global world view are fostered through our numerous mission and education trips, student leadership councils, and many community service outreaches. By providing these opportunities, we aim to graduate students who will be difference-makers.
