Our vision is of an outstanding independent school, known for its excellent teachers, student-centered curriculum, engaged community and intentional outdoor programming. We are realizing this vision through our mission, which is to provide a challenging, progressive curriculum in a nurturing environment, so that students can become confident, enthusiastic learners and caring participants in their local and global communities.

“My time at Sussex (1st-8th grade) was both pivotal and foundational. The innovative and hands-on structure of the curriculum inspired an infinite love of learning and fostered my creativity, while also sparking my curiosity at every turn.”
