2. Lead students to acquire an active-learning strategy by providing individualized instruction through a variety of skills, content areas and levels of instruction.

3. Uphold our commitment to have a diverse student community while offering policies that hold students accountable to high academic standards.

4. Engage and retain administrators and faculty that enhance a collaborative work environment to support the school’s student-centered academic environment.

5. Network services to our students that help them to take full advantage of their stay in the United States.

6. Teach seriously committed students who desire to be fluent in the English language.
