  1. A student-centered, relevant learning experience that prepares students to be successful in the workforce and in course-related career pathways
  2. A safe, secure, and caring learning environment
  3. Effective parent and community engagement in our programs that enables us to obtain valuable feedback to shape our curriculum and help us prepare students for future success
  4. Opportunities for students to obtain industry credentials as well as jobs and/or apprenticeships
