That’s the Wildcat Way


As Wildcats, we have a different way of doing things. Have you noticed that your student creates a positive change or is driven to succeed? If your student is serving his or her community in powerful ways, encourage your student to submit his or her story.

What is the Wildcat Way?

It may not always look the same, but the basic fact remains: Wherever we go, success and positive changes follow. With creative resourcefulness, perseverance to make a difference and the contagious enthusiasm of the Wildcat family, we take what we have learned to thrive in every field.

The principles of the Wildcat Way are:

– As Wildcats, we know enthusiasm and passion are always vital to success, and we bring them to little and big tasks alike.

– As Wildcats, we know that family matters most of all. We bring community-focused attitudes to everything we do.

– As Wildcats, we pride ourselves on using all of our resources and strengths — educational, physical, mental and personality — to change our community, nation and world.

– As Wildcats, we are unwavering in perseverance to accomplish the challenges set before us and those we set for ourselves.
