  • Making Sense of the World

    Tenth graders look for their own place in the world around them, and ponder how they fit into it. They seek an understanding of process, of how things emerge, grow and change.  Our curriculum addresses such processes through the study of subjects such as development of language, inorganic chemistry, embryology and ancient history, all taught in our innovative three and four week-long intensive block format.   As they mature, our tenth graders are encouraged to move beyond black-and-white thinking to more balanced, inclusive thinking.  They are able now to see both sides of an argument, and are guided to flexibility of thought and discourse through debate.  It is an important sign of intellectual maturity to argue in favor of a proposition one does not actually support.

    Our innovative tenth grade program, which takes place within a carefully constructed year-long series of required intensive multidisciplinary immersive three and four week 150 minute long  block classes, are augmented by skill-building track and afternoon elective classes.
