Respect: We believe in the inherent dignity of all people, celebrate individuality, value and appreciate diversity, honor self and others through words and actions.
Trustworthiness: We will always deliver what we promise, and we will never promise something we can't do. We know that trust is the most important aspect of our work. We are committed to doing the right thing, every time.
Resilience: We recognize that the challenge of educational inequality is significant, and we will take sustained effort to achieve our goals.
Independence: Teamwork is essential for success, but being independent of thought, action, and ideas helps us develop our unique character and contribution to the world.
Responsibility: We are responsible and responsive to communities and environments in which we work, and always ensure that what comes from people goes back to people many times over.
