There are 2 Semesters in an academic year.


We offer the American High School Diploma, International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and Advanced Placement (AP) courses. There is a University and College Counseling Office on campus as well as an EAL department providing support to students whose first language is not English. We are very proud of our student diversity (58 different nationalities enrolled with us), our small classes (Average class size in the Upper School is just 10), and our excellent student/teacher ratio of 6:1, allowing us to offer individualized attention to every student. We have 8 boarding houses on campus and our highly experienced boarding team are committed to the safety and wellbeing of our students and making school a home from home. They provide the environment - and support systems - that promote good mental health and life skills, resilience, resourcefulness, and social confidence. Our boarding houses are where life-long friendships are built and they are filled with happiness and laughter.
