Munnerlyn Campus - Upper School (Grades 9-12)
Upper School’s use of the Harkness method and learner-centered teaching, as well as the college counseling program, help prepare students for lives of purpose after Commencement. Through probing classes, emphasis on integrity and civil discourse, an active community service program, and Health, Safety, and Well-Being education, the school instills in its students values and passions that focus on who, not what, they will become. More than 80% of students participate in athletics. Fine Arts provides comprehensive instruction across multiple disciplines, including guest artist instruction, annual performances, and gallery exhibitions. Spiritual Life is woven through the fabric of every aspect at ESJ and provides leadership opportunities through weekly Chapel services, Bible studies, and community service efforts. The College Counseling program begins in grade nine, setting students on a course in preparation for college applications with their advisor and college counselor.
