Core Tenets

Our academic program is built around ten core tenets of progressive education. Developed by our own faculty and staff, these tenets guide us in every area of the curriculum — but they do not dictate a single method of teaching in a given unit, classroom, course, or department. Indeed, they invite pedagogical imagination and innovation.

Challenging
Relevant
Playful
