  • Professional Excellence – Cultivating a highly skilled and well-supported workforce  of educators and administrators prepared to help all children succeed and their families thrive.
  • Leadership – Being a recognized leader and advocate for quality programs among professionals, policymakers, funders, and the communities we serve.
  • Stewardship – Becoming effective stewards of public and private investments in order to deliver on our mission.
