62-acres of woods, campus, and charm

It's a place with large-scale resources with a small-school feel. We're big enough to offer a lot of options—from theater to football, ropes course to robotic—but small enough to have the ability to flourish. SCH gives each student the individual attention while allowing them to run free on the stage, in the woods, and as an entrepreneur.

I was walking through the science building, passed the Robotics Lab, and went back to the lab every day since. A kid was in there on a hoverboard, Mr. Randall was working side-by-side with another student on a 3-D printer, and the place was alive with interest, energy, and infectious learning. I ended up being a co-captain on the World Champion Robotics Team.

LARGE SCHOOL resources with personal coach-athlete relationships

In my 13 years at the school, it was way more than just an academic institution, it was a community where I learned and developed relationships that will last a lifetime.

We found high academic standards at SCH combined with the strong connection to outdoor education, learning support and the vast array of extra curricular opportunities for our children that are part of the culture at SCH.

I am so grateful for the opportunities the school has offered me: science in the woods, CEL [Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership], performance, the list goes on. The ways to explore my passions feels infinite. I am lucky to call SCH my second home.
