CommunityWe value a community committed to communication. Our community knows and understands the role and function of home-school-community connections for youth support and student development.
We recognize unique qualities in the youth we work with and we treat students with respect, fairness and equity.
ReflectionWe value reflection in scholarly learning and professional practice, and are committed to improving through personal and collaborative reflection.
ScholarshipWe are committed to integrating theory, research and evidence. We believe in lifelong learning and professional education as integral to development of expertise.
We believe in providing evidence in light of available data and to applying best practices to positively impact students' lives.
Social JusticeWe are committed to dismantling all forms of inequity/injustice, including discriminatory practices and everyday microaggressions, which violate the dignity and oppress the freedoms of people locally, nationally and globally.
We believe in the Ignatian mission of “cura personalis” – deep respect for the individual and his/her potential.
