While academic rigor and performance is most important, we feel a student's potential is based on more than just numbers, and so we look at each individual for a range of qualities – from intellect, imagination, compassion, respect, generosity and decency, to diversity of background and experience, strength of character and determination to conquer challenges. Therefore, each application for admission is read thoroughly, thoughtfully and fairly to evaluate all-around excellence in academics, the arts, athletics, leadership, service, citizenship, and character.
