Values:
Our founder, Don Bosco, calls us to educate with Reason, Religion and Loving Kindness; this is the groundwork from which our Integral Student Outcomes (ISOs) spring from and how we relate to one another. Therefore, growing and sustaining relationships are the only things that matter.  To succeed in our strategic objectives, we must relate to one another with a common vision and with respect. We must communicate effectively and celebrate our successes internally and externally
