Why all Boys?

We believe boys learn better in an environment where each student is able to be empathetic to one another; where boys are able to work on their sense of self; and where boys can just be boys among their brothers.

Why Independent?

Independent or private schools provide more support, more educational opportunities, and individual attention for each student to grow into the person they are meant to be.
