Life Beyond the Arch


As much as we hate to see our students leave us, we know our mission in life is to prepare them for what we call “life beyond the Arch.” Commencement 2018 photo album.

How do we prepare our students for “life beyond the Arch? Many ways, but here are a few examples:

  • Our Health & Wellness program for all grades is designed to teach students about healthy relationships, stress management, nutrition and sleep, and other skills needed to make sound life choices.
  • Each senior completes a Senior Initiative as part of our ScholarShift blended learning model.
  • Each senior is involved in a year-long Senior Leadership Project with a faculty mentor and also delivers a speech to the Upper School.
  • Our college counselors work closely with each student and his or her parents throughout the upper school experience to craft the right college selection strategy.
