We mentor students to achieve:  

Academic Mastery: the critical thinking skills, depth of knowledge, and complex  reasoning necessary for scholarly excellence at the university level and beyond;

Internal Strength: the confidence, practical skills, and discipline to navigate life’s complex choices and to achieve individual success; 

Perspective: tolerance, respect, compassion, and an appreciation for the breadth and diversity of the world and its cultures;

Integrity: honesty, ethical behavior, and a commitment to the common good. 

Our Philosophy 

Our programs are rooted in academic rigor and a progressive educational philosophy  of individual development, embodied in four key principles: 

1. We recognize each student’s individuality, strengths, and capacity to succeed;
2. We vary our teaching methods accordingly and include experiential travel, service volunteering, and studies outside the classroom; 
3. We teach students, not classes, striving to develop each student’s ability to think deeply, creatively, and analytically. 
4. We support each student in developing their personal growth.
