Our Pre-College Community
When we are part of a thriving community, we feel a sense of kinship, camaraderie and connectedness. This is why our programs offer so much more than an academic experience. They are opportunities for students to connect with peers from across the country and around the world, discover what it means to be part of a community, and learn to embrace each others' differences. Our programs create spaces for students to ask questions, make mistakes, try new things and learn in a supportive environment.
By deciding to attend one of our programs, students commit themselves to maintaining the highest academic and social standards. As a member of our community, students are expected to make a positive contribution by acting responsibly and by respecting the rights of other students, faculty, and staff. Student expectations are outlined in our Code of Conduct.
Through our positive, collaborative community, students can expect to:
- Understand the importance of community standards including the need for policies and procedures.
- Identify the role and impact of an individual within a community.
- Learn to be respectful of individuals who may identify differently.
- Gain confidence in the steps needed to resolve group conflict.
