• Our Mission

    “Provide every one of our students, every opportunity to
    achieve success, every day they are with us, no exceptions”

    Our Vision

    Empowering students to take control of their future by providing an education that inspires and enables them to develop an unshakeable belief in their own potential.

    Our Values

    Our Values are built on the Kids at Hope Framework with the following universal truths:

    1. Believe- Children succeed when they are surrounded by adults who believe they can succeed, no exceptions.
    2. Connect- Children succeed when they have meaningful and sustainable relationships with caring adults.
    3. Time travel- Children succeed when they can articulate their future in four domains rather than one (which is usually Education and Career):
      1. Home and Family
      2. Education and Career
      3. Community and Service
      4. Hobbies and Recreation
