School Vision


We exist in our community so that students who have been historically disadvantaged or traditionally denied access to a high quality educational experience achieve academic and personal success through their exploration of the health services and health careers. Through a focus on experiential learning, community building, and wellness, we bridge the systemic gaps seen in academic achievement, community health and economic stability. We prepare emotionally intelligent members of society committed to being the voice of change in college and beyond.



We achieve our personal best by embodying a growth mindset in our pursuit of excellence. We develop a strong moral compass and deliberately advocate for equity and a safe, supportive, learning community.
