Our Vocation

The conversation between student and teacher is the heart of our school; all that we do must be born of and nourish that relationship. We can accomplish these things only if we keep our students safe and well while they are in our charge.

Our Promise

As a school community with these purposes and responsibilities, we will engage the larger communities of city, nation, and world of which we are a part. We will serve our neighbors. We will live fully in our city—exploring its byways and playing over its terrain.

Our Obligation

We must ask our young people what they believe in so they can know themselves in the world. We must give them the tools of rigorous and passionate intellectual inquiry and self-expression so they can grow. We must lead them to distinguish right from wrong and then do what is right so they can be persuasive and courageous citizens.
