Sterne provides students with a comprehensive and challenging college preparatory curriculum through project-based instruction designed and led by expertly-trained faculty. Self-reflection, self-advocacy, and leadership opportunities are at the core of this program, as each student’s understanding of their own learning profiles fosters autonomy and critical thinking. Students connect directly with teachers and academic coaches during office hours to address specific academic challenges. Our college counseling team works with students and their families throughout high school so that our graduates find the best-fit schools. Sterne graduates have been accepted to more than 100 international colleges and universities, where they pursue their passions as creators, problem-solvers, thinkers, and leaders.

Beyond academics, Sterne high school students enjoy a rich student life experience through arts, athletics, experiential trips, clubs and affinity groups, and school traditions. Explore our High School here on the site, and when you are ready to learn more, submit an inquiry.
