Values

Deeply Invested

When we set our minds on a goal, regardless of the challenges that lie ahead, we take ownership and see things through to the very end.

Leading
with Integrity

We always do the right thing. We set the bar with how we speak and act, making ethical, intentional decisions that create positive impact.

Here to Inspire

We love to learn and share what we know, staying up to date and seeking new knowledge not because we have to but because we want to.

Dedicated
to Innovation

We build a safe environment for new ideas and reject the notion “it has always been done this way” so that together, we find better ways to do better.

One Indigo

We put people first, building trust and confidence to work in collaboration. We can achieve much more as a collective: helping each other, succeeding together.

Meet

As leaders and educators, we lift the next generation up
with a commitment to discovery that’s at the very heart
of learning.
