“Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
- lead by engaging, connecting and taking action;
- develop respect and empathy by seeking greater understanding and appreciation;
- persevere by adapting;
- and discover self-awareness of identity through faith.
Students engage in all-school discussions highlighting relevant literature and key historical and current events to develop the understanding, empathy, values, behaviors and skills required to appreciate multiple perspectives and thrive in an increasingly interconnected world. They connect with strategic partners to collaborate with other schools and communities, research issues, share ideas and develop solutions to specific local or global problems. Students are also encouraged to participate in school-sponsored international adventures -- most recently to Costa Rica, Paris, Barcelona and Montreal.
