Who We Are

Upper school students singing during the open mic event

We believe in the power of curiosity.

We also believe that the quest to achieve a goal is as valuable as – or even more valuable than – the achievement itself. Our students’ aspirations are far more than a desire for greatness; they are the answer to the question, “What problems do I want to solve?”

Within the support and structure that our dynamic faculty provide, students move past limitations and become fearless in their exploration of themselves and the world around them. They engender a culture of inclusion, question anything and everything, seek challenges and opportunities in the classroom and beyond and celebrate the successes of others — all while making it home for dinner. Graduates leave the Great Road as creators of their own destinies, fully prepared to shine as the next generation of innovators, problem-solvers and civic-minded leaders.
