Dear Prospective Families,

Soundview is a place where the unwritten curriculum of altruism and empathy need not compete with traditional academic rigor. It is a place where all adults are atuned to the academic, social and emotional well-being of every child. Faculty and staff have the opportunity to know all students in meaningful ways. We are a community of learners who were freed from the institutionalization of education and treat each other with respect as scholars and as people. Soundview is a place where students are seen, heard and accepted. 

At the heart of Soundview is the belief that students learn best in a small, nurturing environment that feeds both the mind and the soul. By decreasing anxiety, competition and judgment, we help students find their voice as learners and human beings. Our small community and class size allows students to play with new ideas, experiment, and connect to others on a deeper level.

When you step on to the Soundview campus it is our hope that you feel welcome. Ours is a picturesque landscape surrounded by beautiful Victorian buildings and an active pond. The vibrant discourse you overhear in our classrooms; the student created music coming from our Music Conservatory, the energy of our athletics and the creative projects teeming from our Top Tier Arts Studios all contribute to the feeling of warmth and welcome we want you receive. The atmosphere at Soundview is one where students are nurtured to become the best version of themselves. Students are recognized for the individual that they are now, and appreciated for who they will grow to be. Strong student-faculty connections, individualized learning, and a community of caring students and adults serve as a springboard for scholarship and personal growth. 

Please come visit Soundview! See the student-centered learning in our classrooms and engage with faculty, staff, and students. Soundview is a unique place that helps kids develop their minds and hearts.
