Caurus Academy Core Values
INTEGRITY: Caurus Academy is committed to being an organization that operates with integrity, comprised of staff who are committed to acting with integrity, and teaching students to act with integrity while in school and beyond.
INGENUITY: Caurus Academy believes that individuals are instinctively creative. We are committed to igniting the creativity in each of our students so they – and we – will approach life with ingenuity, looking for new and more effective ways to contribute to our communities. Students learn to apply ingenuity both inside of and outside of the classroom, in service, sports, the arts, the sciences and other activities.
INTELLECTUAL: A mind is a terrible thing to waste! Caurus Academy is committed to making sure that all of our students are growing intellectually. This is demonstrated through academic challenge and metacognitive development, resulting in student growth, achievement and ultimately success in life.
INTENTIONAL: Caurus Academy is committed to being an intentional organization, not one that is random in its programming, but focused, deliberate and reasoned. Caurus Academy staff members are intentional in their actions as well, focused on student achievement in the context of care and concern, and passionate about creating students who understand the importance of becoming intentional adults.
INSIGHTFUL: Caurus Academy recognizes that knowledge in and of itself is not enough to achieve success. Our organization is committed to the application of knowledge in ways that will create excellence. Our staff is committed to training students to be insightful, gaining an understanding of themselves, others and the knowledge they acquire so that they, too, can be good stewards of that knowledge.
