Our mission is to arm each student with an education that will engage the whole student and promote a lifetime of learning through a program that is academically challenging and culturally relevant


We believe that every student, regardless of their economic background, deserves an education that enriches, empowers, embraces, nurtures, and expands the student.

  • We believe that academic excellence is possible for all students through the committed efforts of the school, parents, students, and the community.
  • We believe that students learn best in an environment that is exciting, encouraging, rewarding, and relevant.
  • We believe that it is the duty of parents and educators to inspire students to learn to be thinkers, creators, and producers, as well as to learn to be proud, confident, respectful, and responsible.
  • We believe that students should be stimulated intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
  • We believe that small classes are crucial for quality learning, especially for high achievers and for students who need extra assistance.
  • We believe that by pairing academic objectives with real world applications, students are able to better understand how learning supports and creates life
