VITALITY,
ENGAGEMENT,
AND PURPOSE

Poly Prep’s Upper School program reflects our students’ extraordinary–and extraordinarily diverse–talents and interests. Collaboratively, we work to cultivate the skills, confidence, and resolve to live a life of purpose and meaning, in high school and beyond. We invite you to join us in this journey. 

Much Ado About Math

Academic Excellence

Our Upper School curriculum challenges students to move beyond their existing assumptions and understandings, celebrate the creative tension that differences generate, and hone critical thinking and communication skills that will serve them throughout their lives. From 9th to 12th grades, students join a community of learners — including faculty, deans, advisors, and other mentors — who encourage and inspire them to excel, especially by taking the intellectual risks that academic and personal excellence requires.
