Why a School for Boys?

There is something really special about schools just for boys with teachers who understand how they learn. Teachers who know it is important to be able to laugh with them, to stimulate their imagination, to ignite their passions and to be able to correct them, while still conveying a sense that every boy is valued.

Education of the Heart

Faith, hospitality, love, justice, and compassion guide our culture and provide a firm foundation for how we encourage our boys to go beyond themselves and care for the needs of others, particularly those without a voice and those who are marginalised.
