Learning is active and engaging at Corbett Prep.
Our curriculum is built around authentic experiential, inquiry-based, and reflective learning, helping students uncover facts, relationships, and truths for themselves and promoting autonomy, responsibility, and problem-solving skills. Creativity is a core feature of our curriculum. We encourage students to embrace their imagination as an important part of their educational journey.
