Mission and Vision Statement

The Academic Link’s Mission:   We embrace the philosophy of learning to learn, thereby equipping each student to take intellectual risks, to understand the value of mistakes, and to become students with perseverance inevitably leading to success in the classroom and in life.   

Developing each student’s character through hard work, mentoring social interaction , and the teaching of Biblical principles are committments our dedicated, knowledgable staff undertake so that each student matures into the unique person he or she was created to be, capable of positively impacting his or her community for the future and for Christ.

The Academic Link’s vision is driven by our students. We believe each student learns best in small structured, collaborative classes with intuitive and knowledgeable teachers skilled in mediated learning.  We envision a classroom where learning is cultivated by problem solving, engagement with teachers is rewarding and collaborative, and each student achieves success.
