Our Core Values: Inquiry, Care, Integrity, Agency, Interconnection


Giving Opportunities

Your Contribution Matters.

The FIVE CORE VALUES we adopted as part of our strategic design act as a compass as we turn our groundbreaking vision into a reality. They allow us to make decisions, define policy, develop programs, and build our community and culture with the guidance and through the lens of INQUIRY, CARE, INTEGRITY, AGENCY, and INTERCONNECTION.

Julia Russell Eells, Head of School
