Menaul School develops excellence, confidence, and integrity and provides the foundation for life-long learning and ethical leadership.
In mind, body and spirit, our mission is to prepare students to succeed.
The Menaul School community believes in educating for life and to that end holds these core values at the heart of all of our activities.
Believing in the central importance of diversity – racial, ethnic, economic, intellectual, cultural, and personal – we provide an educational experience which opens understanding of our global community.
Inspired by God’s grace, love, and compassion, we honor each other as diverse, unique, and worthy individuals.
Promoting critical thinking, we foster life-long learning through the development of intellectual curiosity, free and open inquiry, and teamwork for living in an ever-changing world.
“We want our students to walk away from us and know that the best project they will ever work on is themselves. We want them to remember that academics are important, but living a life where they are happy and proud of themselves exceeds all else!”
Emily Thordahl, Middle School Director
Cultivating a sense of call to responsible citizenship based on community service, environmental stewardship, non-violence, and peacemaking, our students can transform the world.
Nurturing moral development in a community grounded in the Christian tradition, we encourage exploration, understanding, and respect of other traditions.
“Your child will not blend into the background at Menaul. Your student’s teachers will know your child well and nurture and challenge them in mind, body and spirit. Finally, your student will be a part of a community that lives out the values of diversity and generosity of spirit.”
Kate Roesler, Humanities Support
