In the Middle School, vital electives enrich the core academic program. In the Arts program, students are provided a variety of opportunities to participate in music, drama and visual arts classes, give performances, and display their work for the Hiller and Lafayette campuses. Debate, gardening, publications, athletics, architecture, and academic prep (study hall) classes round out these rich offerings. In addition, students may take physical education classes and participate on athletics teams that compete against teams from other independent schools in the area.
