Drawing students primarily from the Houston metropolitan area, the school features a college preparatory curriculum and a favorable student-faculty ratio. Technology instruction is integrated into the curriculum, with all students using laptop computers in class and at home. For a week each January, boys and girls in grades 9-11 choose a grade-level course and an elective course from a variety of subject areas. Student groups organize regular community service projects, and seniors may substitute two weeks of intensive outreach activities for classes.
