The foundation of La Pietra’s academic program is our Vision: We educate young women to lead a life of achievement.
As educators, mentors and role models, our most important job is to help develop and nurture each student’s skills and abilities to successfully meet life’s challenges and enjoy a life of achievement.
In order to realize this vision for our students, our commitment is to provide a vigorous college preparatory and life skills curriculum and to offer individualized education in an extraordinary learning environment. Through collaborative learning communities, the latest technology, as well as innovative class offerings, students are able to build the capacities needed to accomplish their goals in academics, life, and in college admissions. We balance our girls’ independence with structure, support, and guidance through peer and personal interactions, hands-on work, project-based assignments, online courses, and we emphasize the role of teacher as facilitator. We favor a highly participatory and personal approach that addresses each girl’s needs.
La Pietra believes that middle school and upper school students have unique and different academic needs. Our curriculum addresses those needs, focusing on exposure to a variety of disciplines and offerings in middle school, and individual student interests and pathways in the upper school.
