What is the average class size?
The average class size is 15 students with a 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio. With our manageable size, innovative teaching methods and flexible curriculum, we provide the individualized approach each girl needs to excel in all aspects of her education.

Students must supply their own devices. Any tablet or laptop with a diagonal screen between 8” and 14” is acceptable. All devices must have a keyboard either attached or Bluetooth.
We recognize that our focus on growing our technology and distance learning capabilities over the past five years is paying off during the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to expand the technology needed to be successful and our faculty engaged in professional development during Summer 2020 to further improve our distance learning capabilities. Our goal is to continue providing the individualized instruction that our students and their families value.
During Summer 2020 we also enhanced our capabilities to support distance learning through the expansion of existing technology infrastructure.
