Max '22

"I'm learning a lot about how to become a leader."

We are dedicated to creating an environment in which all students will thrive and learn from one another. By narrowing the age ranges in each academic and social setting, kids can be kids just a little longer, creating small, close-knit environments that nurture their development.

Max - like many students - came to the Academy not knowing many of his new classmates. However, through the purposeful integration of students into our 6-7 division, he quickly developed meaningful relationships with his classmates and teachers.

"I think the most special thing about the Academy is the community," reflects Max. "I have different teachers and different friends who all have something in common, and we all support each other in our differences."
