In all aspects of the academic program, the student is the center of our efforts. The goal is to see that our students experience personal growth while they prepare academically to face the many challenges that they will meet throughout their lives. Our main goal is to assist the students to develop critical thinking and, analytical skills, teaching them to use these skills in a rational and effective way.

Our program of studies emphasizes appreciation for aesthetics and cultural values. Music, art, foreign languages, and technology are integrated into the program of studies. These are designed to provide a wider view of the world around them, and to prepare them to make wise and appropriate decisions in life.

The basic academic program includes instruction in English for each of the following areas: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Health, Computers and Physical Education. In addition, the program includes instruction in Spanish for the courses required by the Dominican Ministry of Education. Strong efforts are made to integrate various aspects of the program of studies. Basic objectives for eighth grade through level twelve are identified and consolidated for all areas of the curriculum. The Common Core Standards provide the foundation, or core, of the program. Student progress is monitored continuously, on the basis of formative assessments. Strong emphasis is placed on developing Critical Thinking skills by having students research, analyze, and come up with their own conclusion supported with reliable sources and references.

The School is committed to provide a balanced program of instruction in English that meets the highest standards of an American-based curriculum, commensurate with the abilities, interests, and educational needs of our student body.
