We are looking for students who are committed to academic, spiritual, emotional, and professional growth. It’s extremely important to us that our students are determined to do their best both in the classroom and the workplace. And it’s equally as important that all of us—students, faculty, and families—contribute to an environment based on mutual respect, care, and friendship!
