General School Mission

"The mission of the YMCA is to put Christian Principles into practice through mind, body & spirit. Spirit refers to self-esteem and willingness to help others, and the activities that develop these qualities. It also instills a sense of fun and
a climate of positive energy. Mind refers to learning and to activities that promote learning. YMCA activities include and encourage problem solving and instilling boundaries and expectations each time an activity is undertaken. Body refers to
health, wellness, and the activities that promote these qualities. YMCA activities include and encourage physical fitness and active games."
