Mission and Vision


The Hague School’s mission is to empower and prepare secondary students through collaborative dialogue, self-directed learning, and a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum. We strive to instill a lifelong love of learning, compassion for humanity, and leadership skills for a global society.


The Hague School will be an independent secondary school. By design, we will be a small, open-minded community that promotes individualized instruction and unique student opportunities. The Hague Approach brings contemporary technology to focused conference table discourse.

At The Hague School, there will be no rows of desks. Students will prepare with a master teacher and come to the table ready to actively participate in facilitated peer-to-peer interaction, where they will engage, create, and problem solve. The Hague School faculty will include diverse, experienced educators who balance research-based practice and innovative approaches to teaching and learning with our trademarked conference method of instruction. Cross-curricular approaches will be developed to offer project-centered and experiential coursework in conjunction with local professionals and businesses, giving students real world experience.

With their teachers as supportive guides, students of all backgrounds will engage in educational experiences rich in meaning that allow them to cultivate a sense of self and empower them to find their niche in a global society.
