Welcome to Upper School

Welcome to the Upper School! Our Upper School curriculum offers a course of study that prepares students to enter highly regarded colleges and universities in the United States and around the world. We encourage students to balance the demands of their academic workload with a wide variety of extracurricular activities – including clubs, sports, performing arts groups, and volunteer organizations.  Service to the community is a graduation requirement, and as our school incorporates Early School through Grade 12, many of our underclassmen volunteer their time within the school proper as well as the local community.

Our College Counseling Program is like no other. As early as freshman year, students begin the college planning process.  We offer a comprehensive program that guides students as they prepare for life after Prairie.

The dedication of students and faculty molds the high school process into an experience that is like no other. I encourage you to take the time to learn more about our programs as well as schedule a time to visit our campus!
