Our Core Values
Leadership: We believe that leaders are made, not born. Leadership requires us to empower the people around us to achieve their best. Leaders do this by leading by example even when no one is looking, making our personal learning public, and developing strong personal relationships with others.
Scholarship: We believe that learning must take place in context and is driven by more than a person’s IQ. We will listen, speak, write, and read like literary scholars, historians, mathematicians, scientists, and artists so that we can make meaning of the world. We recognize that our academic ability is determined by our resilience, grit, conscientiousness, creativity, and focus as much as by our IQ.
Service: We believe that we are a part of a larger community and as such are responsible for making our mark on the world by doing all that we can to make our community, country, and world a better place.
