We seek students who envision possibilities and imagine a better world.

Admission to the middle school program is by application. If we have more applications than places, a lottery will be used to determine which students are accepted. Admission to the high school program is by portfolio. Middle school students in the school will be developing their portfolio as part of the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade curriculum.
