Mission Statement

Our school provides a safe, supportive environment that prepares immigrant youth for college and their careers.

Description

Our school is a close-knit, supportive community for students who may feel displaced after moving from another country and are unfamiliar with American language and culture. Differences among students are cherished and nurtured as they are continually encouraged to celebrate their cultural and linguistic individuality. We also believe that recent immigrants are capable of the highest levels of academic success when given the support they need.

Because of these beliefs, our program is designed around these key features:

Experiential Learning
Learning goes beyond the walls of the school through community participation, career internships, and academic projects.

Small Size
Each grade level has only 100 students. Class sizes are 25 students or less. Our team structure allows for personalization, growth, and success for our students.

Language Development through the Content Areas
Students learn academic English skills most effectively in a meaningful context and their skills will emerge most naturally in purposeful, language-rich, experiential, interdisciplinary study

College Preparatory Focus
Students receive significant support to become prepared academically for success in college. Starting in 9th grade, students begin to explore options for college.

Career Exploration
In their junior and senior years, seniors will have opportunities for internships and community service in different settings, from businesses to government offices to community organizations.
