Our Mission and Purpose

Our Mission and Purpose

Our Mission is to provide a uniquely effective, integrated program of academic preparation, graduate support, and mutual long-term commitment that achieves nationally recognized excellence in terms of college graduation rates for our students.

Our Purpose is to break the cycle of generational poverty by developing our students’ ability to live a life of choice and opportunity. Our students will be productive, faith-filled, and fulfilled members of society who understands the importance of giving back.

Our Vision is to be a regional leader in the education of young men and women from impoverished families, well known for the caliber of our teachers, the rigor and creativity of our programs, and the academic and service achievements of our students. Our vision is that our students excel in high school, college, and beyond, and that they become role models and leaders in their communities.

Our Philosophy is built on the Ignatian-inspired idea of cura personalis, care for the whole person, including the academic, social, physical, spiritual, and emotional. Only with this noble, integrated, classic approach in mind can we accomplish our lofty mission and graduate young persons of character and intellect sufficient enough to ensure that they will become college graduates and—most importantly—caring, competent persons for others, role models and leaders in their families and in their communities.
