Core Curriculum
Our curriculum is built on the fundamentals of the liberal arts education, a combination of the arts, social and physical sciences, mathematics, literature, and humanities. We continuously update the curriculum based on state, national, Montessori and Advanced Placement (AP) standards - designed to help students achieve overall college and career readiness.

Key Elements

Each year's curriculum is broken down into five Quests, or learning journeys grounded in one question, which is addressed across all subjects. Within every Quest, students are challenged to progress at their own pace in the following courses:

I. Science, Social Sciences, and Geography

Integrated themes from studies in natural and cultural history, including interdependency, evolution, life cycles, matter and energy, behavior and culture, health, agriculture, government, manufacturing, communication, world systems, and others, in the context of social responsibility and communities.

II. Language Arts

Develop confidence in self-expression via observations, debates, theater, video, photography, essays, play-writing, poetry, and short stories; explores related historical and philosophical material through literature utilizing components of style, genre, characterization, interpretation, and the art of discussion. Includes second language and grammar studies.
III. Mathematics

Leverage logic, mathematics and critical thinking skills to solve problems in relation to a variety of challenges, from practical money transactions to algebraic relationships; explores in-depth numbers, properties, higher measurement, geometric proofs, and algebraic equations. 


IV. The Arts

Utilize a discipline-based arts education, including social arts, manual arts, physical arts and fine arts.  The focus is on individual artistic areas of painting, acting, singing, composing, photography, dance, and sculpture. The approach also focuses on general education for aesthetic literacy which integrates the arts with other academic subjects.
