Academics at Trevor

We always say: Spend a few hours at Trevor—listening to lively debate, witnessing the joy of discovery, seeing uninhibited collaboration—and you’ll understand the ambition of our academic experience.

Across all three levels, we bring together a challenging college-preparatory curriculum, expert educators, and diverse teaching methodologies which deepen our students’ learning and lend authentic meaning to each school day. Not only are Trevor students more than prepared for each grade level and challenging college-level work, but they’ve also learned how to learn in the process. We purposefully build critical-thinking skills, problem-solving know-how, the value of perseverance and grit, and the ability to reason and debate into the fabric of the Trevor academic experience.

What you find at Trevor is lively discourse, intellectual energy, empathetic engagement, constant questioning of the status quo, and serious investigation into topics ranging from probability and the Freedom Riders in Lower School to net neutrality, The Canterbury Tales, and quantum physics in Middle and Upper School.
At the heart of Trevor lies ambitious academics in the hands of curious, capable, and engaged young minds, each one guided by expert, passionate educators who could teach anywhere in the word.
I love the academic program. The tree study in Lower School for example—learning collaboratively with each other right in the park. It’s one of the best ways to learn.
