Mission & Vision

This summer our staff came together to revisit our Mission & Vision. As our school has grown and our school family has evolved, it was time for us to refocus on what it is we do for our scholars and why we are so committed to that work. Below is the vision and mission created by our staff and compiled by Mrs. Kristyn Cornish of the Kindergarten Team.

Our VISION is to enroot spirit, refine talent, and bridge relationships.

Our MISSION: Imagine Morningside, a leader in academic achievement and character development, will enroot spirit, refine talent, and bridge relationships by empowering all stakeholders to be innovative, reflective learners who are socially responsible, resilient, and equipped with the knowledge and skills to positively impact our global society.
