About SPS

LEARN MORE ABOUT WHO WE ARE AND WHERE WE STARTED

OUR BEGINNINGS
WHERE WE STARTED

Seven Peaks was founded in 1998 by a small group of lifelong learners who were dedicated to creating a rigorous and caring educational experience for their children. Since those first years, we have sent many talented, empathetic people out into the world. Seven Peaks School focuses on skill development, not just curriculum, so that children are prepared to go anywhere and do anything they dream. At Seven Peaks School we learn how to think, how to be, and how to do.

OUR MISSION

To inspire a lifelong love of learning in our students.

To enable our children to thrive in a complex world.

To challenge them within a safe and nurturing environment.

OUR VISION

Seven Peaks students will emerge intellectually curious, confident in their education and individuality, compassionate towards others and inspired to do good in the world.
