The Grauer Difference
There is no other school like Grauer. We offer a college preparatory education in a humanitarian environment with unparalleled student support, outside-of-class learning, leadership opportunities, and Mastery Learning.
Values hold a prime place in The Grauer School’s day-to-day practices. The school holds humanitarianism as a core value, so we require at least 50 hours of community service before each student graduates. Compassion is our watchword – for one another, for our environment, and for all. Our renowned Expeditionary Learning program provides students with meaningful challenges worldwide.
We believe that motivation to succeed should come from within. So our instructional aim is to create a positive, enriching, and Socratic academic environment where students’ efforts and attitudes help them shape and achieve their personal goals.
We are strong believers in the nation’s Small School’s movement, which holds that students will have a better academic experience if their school environment offers close bonding opportunities with peers and teachers. Our optimal size allows us to offer unrivaled academic and personal opportunities — opportunities that have become increasingly hard to find.
