The humanities offer not only an understanding of history and culture, but of our place in each. They give us language and literature to explore our past, and, quite literally, write our futures.
The world around is increasingly driven by science and technology. Taft's STEM curriculum embraces these dynamic and consequential fields, preparing students to compete and to lead.
Art is the most elemental form of expression. It challenges the mind, nurtures the soul, and spurs innovation. Mr. Taft understood the vital role art plays in shaping the spirit and intellect of his students.
Experiential and applied learning opportunites at Taft transform theory into practice, knowledge into understanding, and passion into action.
Taft offers a unique diploma program that combines rigorous course work with service at home and abroad. It reflects Taft's commitment to preparing students to become global citizens.
In 1890, Mr. Taft founded our school with a broad but singular mission: to educate the whole student. At its core, our mission means that education at Taft is personal, moral, and ethical, as well as academic. It means that we value high scholarship and intellectual endeavor along with a belief that character, above all else, determines success in life.
While the world and the school have changed dramatically over the past 125 years, Mr. Taft’s fundamental values endure: work hard, without regard for public acclaim; develop all your talents—academic, artistic, and athletic; and most importantly, give of yourself to others. Our culture is inseparable from both our mission and our motto: non ut sibi ministretur sed ut ministret—not to be served, but to serve. Our community is fundamentally shaped by this dedication to helping young people become lifelong learners, thoughtful world citizens, and caring people.
