MISSION, VALUES, AND GOALS

Vision

Connect prepares and inspires students to create positive change in their communities.

Mission

Connect builds a diverse, inclusive, and intellectually stimulating learning environment and emphasizes the cognitive and social emotional skills to inspire intellectually and emotionally intelligent problem-solvers.

Our Mission and Vision are supported by five core values:

Opportunity

When students from all backgrounds have the opportunity to engage and learn from one another in a supportive and stimulating learning environment, growth and development for all students is deepened.

Empathy

The ability to work and learn with others requires awareness of others’ emotions and thoughts and an appreciation of the diversity of people’s strengths and challenges.

Discovery

Encouraging student inquiry and discovery supports the development of thoughtful, engaged citizens who are inspired to create positive change in their communities.

Perseverance

Our diverse and academically intensive learning environment pushes students outside of their comfort zones, instilling the self-understanding, confidence, and determination that are essential to overcome inevitable challenges.

Community

Strong relationships between students and adults supports a positive school culture and classroom community.

Our planning, budgeting, and day-to-day operations are guided by our mission and values, as is our goal setting for student performance and improvement.
