Our "Character Development" Approach

Aristotle said, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all” and we agree.

As an organization passionately dedicated to providing an extraordinary whole-child education unlike any other, we have created the Branches program to explicitly teach students some of the characteristics that will help them become more mindful.

We have chosen to name the program "Branches" because we believe our students must be firmly rooted in academics to grow intellectually, however,  intellect is only one aspect of life. We want each of our students to branch out into the world, to blossom, to grow, and to live fuller and more fruitful lives.
