    Branson offers a rich, rigorous curriculum taught by talented faculty.  All Branson courses emphasize skills and habits of mind that allow our students to reach their full potential as intellectuals, artists, leaders, and ethical citizens in a complex world. 
    While learning the rich content of the curriculum, Branson students develop the skills of inquiry, critical thinking, experimentation, analysis, synthesis, and reflection.  In each class, Branson teachers cultivate a community of generous learners who encourage in one another critical skepticism, animated debate, effective communication, resourcefulness, and perseverance.
