Our Mission

About

Our Purpose, the Reason We Exist

All students who graduate from our Grade 6 through 12 Early College Campus will be prepared to succeed in college and as leaders in the quest for social justice. We develop intellectually curious scholars who are articulate communicators in two languages, critical thinkers and consumers, cultural ambassadors, and contributing community members.

Our students develop positive habits that build physical and mental health. They demonstrate perseverance, ethics and character in the pursuit of excellence.
