  • To support the transition of students as they progress through various stages of development.
  • To provide a safe and secure environment while promoting holistic wellness.
  • To develop global citizenship through leadership development, personal growth and community responsibility.
  • Continually assessing our procedures, services, and standards to reflect the evolving needs of our students.

Values

There are four core values at the heart of our efforts:

Knowledge
Facts, interpretations, data, and opinions… our pursuit of knowledge is one of the important journeys we engage, transforming our observations and influencing our own evolution and growth.

Wellness
Physical, emotional, spiritual, and health… our challenge to maintain a fine balance is a necessary journey, staying attentive to our various dimensions that allow for a positive and holistic experience.

Community
Communication, understanding, and respect… our need to belong and fit in is a demanding journey, finding our identity amongst so many others and integrating what makes us unique and what makes us the same.

Citizenship
Leadership, integrity, and contribution… our desire to make a difference and an impact is an enlightening journey, immersing ourselves in our experiences and finding ways to leave our mark, to be productive and positive members of a community and society.
