From La Lumiere School

We believe that education involves the intentional formation of the entire person. And that’s a lofty endeavor. It starts with encountering every one of our students as individuals, each with a unique set of gifts and the same inherent worth. From that foundation, our small size and robust interpersonal culture enable us to forge unparalleled bonds—between classmates but also with faculty members—creating a learning environment where students can't help but invest wholeheartedly in their experience.

Portfolio Writing Program

The English department emphasizes students' growth as writers through a portfolio program. All freshmen take Intro to Literature & Composition, all sophomores take Literature & Composition. Juniors & seniors take two semester-long seminars of their choice. As the culminating project in each of these courses, students select their best writing, make revisions, & submit it to their portfolio.
