Advanced Academics

High Expectations with the Support to Achieve Them

 
El Dorado's academic program is a dynamic balance of time-honored traditions and innovative best practices proven to produce remarkable academic results. Enriched with Arts, Music, Spanish, Technology, Physical Education, and Extracurricular Activities, the curriculum is advanced and accelerated, in most cases one to two years ahead of public school norms. In every case, high expectations are matched with the support to achieve them. State-of-the-art technology is integrated into the classroom at all grade levels. Small class sizes ensure plenty of individual attention. The well-rounded program strikes the right balance between academics and play; structure and creativity; guidance and independence. Minds are challenged. Voices are heard. Hands-on learning opportunities encourage the application of classroom theory to real life. Students learn to think about concepts, to discover connections beyond what is taught, and to explore what else might be imagined. They become independent, self-directed learners, with the advanced skills, confidence, and maturity to succeed not only in the Valley's best private high schools, but in college and in life.
