General School Mission

"Academic rigor, responsibility, individual attention in a caring community -

To provide a genuine alternative to the public school program by offering to all its students a solid curriculum, high academic standards, guaranteed small classes, and a nurturing environment.

To be a model of communication, cooperation, and trust in the shared endeavor of serving the children's best interest.
To be a school community with a strong sense of pride and identity, and one that fosters the basic social values of honesty, personal integrity, courtesy, and consideration of others.
To encourage sensitivity, responsibility, and self-worth by actively promoting service projects both in school and in the community at large.
To prepare students for the challenges and complexities of our ever-changing world by developing thinking and problem-solving skills.
To provide the foundation necessary for future academic and personal success and to inspire students to be responsible citizens and life-long learners.
