The work that we do creates positive disturbances or positive movement in our students’ lives and in our communities. We seek change in our society; the status quo is not acceptable. We seek to be agents of beneficial change for our children and the communities we serve. Most importantly, we strive to instill in our children the awareness that they are gifted and have a responsibility to share their gifts and thereby make a difference in their lives and the lives of others.
Providing the Educational Opportunities that Change Lives
Mission and Values
Making Waves commits to rigorously and holistically preparing students to gain acceptance to and graduate from college to ultimately become valuable contributors to the workforce and their communities.
These five values are the foundation we use to define what it means to be a "Wave-Maker."
We combine our intellect and critical thinking to support each other and make healthy choices for ourselves and positive changes in our community.
We are agents of change, who, through hard work and perseverance, have the power to define ourselves and to control our destiny.
We believe each person is valuable and we demonstrate respect by following our community norms.
We have integrity; we are accountable for our decisions and actions and their impact on self and community.
We are life-long learners who aspire to and achieve academic excellence.
