Mission, Vision & Commitment

“We are growing students who
are curious and engaged,
who practice empathy and integrity,
and who are resilient, creative and mindful.”

Central Park Staff


We nurture the development of the whole child who is then inspired to continually expand all aspects of his/her being (mind, body, heart) and is empowered to improve the world for others. We build habits of mind and ways of being that are caring, curious, reflective and visionary.
