Our Philosophy: Academic Excellence with a Heart

Academic Excellence
Pilgrim uses a “whole child” approach, focusing on academic, spiritual, emotional, social and physical development. 
Pilgrim prides itself on a play-based preschool and kindergarten, high test scores and a 95% acceptance rate of graduates into competitive high school programs.

With a heart…
Faith development is an integral part of the growth process and enables students to successfully achieve a positive place for themselves in society.

Pilgrim has been a great fit. In addition to the level of academic rigor, we know we can keep him here through junior high; thus ensuring that we don’t need to work through the selective enrollment craziness.

This is not a school in a glitzy new facility, but what it is, is good, values-driven education, with dedicated teachers, and a community that is accepting of all. In my mind that is a find.
