About

We make it a priority to know our students and their families through our advisory program. Our inquiry-based curriculum asks students to develop questions, conduct research, and prepare in-depth projects that exhibit their learning. Origins' challenging liberal arts education is grounded in small group work, reading analysis, and an emphasis on writing.
