    Tenacre provides an academically challenging environment for students, one that nurtures their intellectual curiosity, stimulates personal growth, and fosters critical thinking. We encourage the physical, moral, and social growth of our children, and strive to prepare them for life in the culturally, racially, and economically complex world that awaits them. As you begin to explore our website, I hope you will begin to see what makes Tenacre such a special place.
