    • Provide opportunities for students to develop leadership skills. 
    • Empower students to set goals to drive their achievement through identifying their academic strengths and challenges. 
    • Provide opportunities for students to be proficient users of technology and to understand its potential benefits and risks. 
    • Guide and support students as they learn to work collaboratively and respectfully with peers and adults. 
    • Provide students with learning experiences which will prepare them to become responsible citizens.
