Our Mission is student development. We work to release the inherent intellectual capacity of all children, build their self esteem and affirm their right to learn.
We commit ourselves to break the cycle of underdevelopment that restrains so many of our children of color. We will disprove the myth that these children cannot learn at high levels and demonstrate their true capabilities.
