Our Unique Freshman Year

Ninth grade is unique for the opportunities it offers at Renbrook. Academically rigorous, it matches the freshman programs at premier secondary schools, strengthened by the advantages of small class size and individual attention.

The academic schedule includes intensive research projects, analytical papers, and lab reports. Strengthened by this program, most ninth grade graduates earn acceptance at top secondary schools in the independent sector, and advanced placement status in public school programs.

Most importantly, the ninth grade is the leadership class at Renbrook School. Individually and collectively, ninth graders are leaders on campus in sports, the arts, independent study service.

Ninth graders preside at Morning Meeting and their curricular and extracurricular activities are as expansive as they are enriching - from the yearly off-campus leadership summit to the Ninth Grade Service Day each spring.

Each year, ninth grade students learn how to balance rigorous studies with wider school experiences. What they learn about leadership, diversity, and compassion during this formative year can last a lifetime.
