We do this through a variety of ways, including:

  • Enhancing the quality of our educational, co-curricular and extracurricular programs; and
  • Encouraging the sharing of time, talent and treasure to help accomplish our mission of preparing diverse students to successfully depart to serve and positively impact their respective communities.
