Caat's Philosophy & Pillars
Opportunity means that every child will be competitively eligible for a four-year university.
Below are our four pillars on which our school is based.
We take responsibility and move forward together.
Our promise is to do whatever it takes for every child to thrive. We are an intentional community, which means we all have a shared responsibility to each other. We embrace difficult conversations because they help us grow. We believe that hard work will lead us to success.
We create the future we want to experience.
The Cardinal Values of courage, wisdom, justice, and self control guide us. It takes more than talent to be successful. Values build strong minds that push through adversity. Our children need mentors to show them how these values help them live a life of direction and purpose.
We admire people who push the limits.
Giving children space to explore creatively helps them achieve at high levels. Every child has unique talents and skills. We cultivate talents and celebrate individuality. Discipline helps us form habits for success. We help children find their passion and chart a path to success.
We are focused on results, not just effort.
We don't compete, we set the standard. Using real-time data we make decisions about what a child needs. We never let a child fall behind. Parents never have to wonder how their child is doing. As children get older, they take ownership of their learning to make choices about their future.
