We believe and promote:
A challenging academic program based on American standards that teaches students how to think, to learn, to problem solve, and to work both individually and in teams while acquiring the foundational knowledge and skills needed to be successful in today’s world.
A community atmosphere in which each student can gain a sense of ‘who they are’ in the world; to develop self-confidence, strong character, conviction, leadership abilities, grace, courage, the desire to be a lifelong learner, and the commitment to achieve excellence in all they do.
A view that looks beyond oneself to the assets and needs of the surrounding community and the world. The model SSIS graduate will demonstrate a caring attitude, act as a catalyst for change, serve as effective global citizens and environmental stewards.
An academic program that promotes an appreciation for all of life and seeks to balance the sciences with the humanities; academics with the arts; mental wholeness with physical, social and spiritual wholeness; and future career with family relationships.
A perspective that each individual is a person of worth.
