Upper School


Our Upper School curriculum is grounded in our progressive principles, which provide an experiential, individually-focused, and collaborative learning environment with a special emphasis on college readiness.

Ours is a rigorous liberal arts curriculum requiring four credits in each of our five core disciplines - English, history, mathematics, science, and world language. At the same time, our students are encouraged to explore their strengths through our wide array of elective offerings in both our core departments and in the arts, an approach that prioritizes each student’s pursuit of their passions and interests.

In all disciplines, we stress those skills and competencies that will best prepare our students for their lives after Park: critical thinking and problem solving; clear, cogent expression in written and oral communication; diligence and work ethic; and collaboration and teamwork.

Above all, our focus on our core values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, and Kindness fosters in our students the confidence and compassion necessary to serve and lead in the creation of a more equitable and inclusive future.
