Our Themes

Each year, we introduce a key theme we focus on as a College community. The themes reflect ideals which we want to embody and model in our relationships with each other and those in the Community around us. Themes are cumulative, creating a living set of principles that we strive to live out in our daily lives. Our Themes are displayed throughout the College as a constant reminder of our expectations of one another.
