The School is housed on 67 acres on two campuses and employs over 200 faculty and staff. The Upper School resides on a classic collegiate-style campus, including a dedicated academic building, a fine arts complex with a 500-seat theater, and an athletic complex with gymnasium and strength and conditioning facilities. This separate campus, located less than a mile from the PK-8 campus, is now in its thirteenth year and enrolls 350 students in grades 9-12.
