Le Jardin Academy is a nurturing and
vigorous learning community.
Our college preparatory program strives to create curious, active learners who excel scholastically and have the opportunity to develop their personal skills and talents.
Students are supported in learning to lead balanced, healthy lives, to appreciate the arts, and to value the diverse perspectives of other people and cultures.
Our goal is to develop knowledgeable, responsible and caring young people of character who help to create a more peaceful and sustainable world through understanding, stewardship, and respect.
