Core Values

Before we set out to build a program, College Bound stakeholders came together to identify our beliefs. A primary objective was to be passionate stewards of our mission, our students, our schools, and our donors. Out of many discussions we arrived at The Six Essential Core Values. These values guide our behavior and capture the spirit of College Bound. College Bound’s 360-degree approach to learning and preparation is guided by our passion and commitment to the Six Essentials. From potential to realization, we use these essentials to positively impact the lives of our students and to inspire them to become leaders who add vibrancy to our community and exhibit pride to our workforce.

The Six Essentials are:
