Students are challenged to apply corresponding concepts to develop essential skills, build character and increase community involvement through Citizen Actions. Students will use their Time, Talent and Treasure to make an impact on their community. Opportunities throughout the year help inspire and educate the whole citizen by ensuring the comprehension of critical civic, character, historical and career / life knowledge.

School administrators, counselors and teachers facilitate, mentor, and celebrate student achievements. Together, we help students engage in real-world opportunities, giving them a firm foundation and a roadmap for the paths they choose after graduation.
