We take a big picture approach to college preparation that enhances critical thinking, reading, writing, and communication skills. Students receive an education that is designed to significantly improve their exam scores, teach them to read, write, and think at a university level, and give them the academic prowess necessary to get into, as well as to succeed at, the best universities.
We take an interdisciplinary approach to education. Our students study literature, rhetoric, ethics, history, philosophy, comparative politics, ecology, physics, neurology, economics, sociology, psychology, linguistics, and current events. The objective is to develop an understanding of the world that is rooted in contemporary knowledge, theories, and problems.
We place an emphasis on communication. Simply put, no other ability has as much of an impact on our success, in our academic studies, our careers, and our lives, as the ability to communicate effectively.
Through reading, lectures, discussions, presentations, and essays, students are introduced to a wide array of contemporary knowledge. Students also learn the foundational communication skills that we will enhance throughout their high school and university years.
Through reading, lectures, discussions, presentations, and essays, students delve deeper into a variety of fields. Students are encouraged to take the AP Exams that our courses prepare them for. They are encouraged to take up internships, volunteer work, and collegiate programs.
