Admissions Philosophy

We seek students who will thrive in our classrooms and bring vibrancy to our campus. We review each application individually and holistically, taking into consideration quality of academic preparation (which includes both rigor of course work and grades), extracurricular activities, individual talents and character, recommendations, and ACT or SAT test scores. A campus visit to meet with an admissions counselor is recommended, as it helps complete the picture for both the prospective student and the college.
