MISSION & VALUES

 
MISSION​ & VISION

Cultivating scholars for impactful global engagement, ethical citizenship, and lifelong learning.

Socrates Academy is a preparatory school for College and Career Readiness that works in partnership with our local and global community to inspire scholars to reach their full academic and intellectual potential. Scholars employ intellectual curiosity and engage in critical thinking while adhering to principles of diversity, equity, equality, and empathy. Multicultural competency is enriched with advanced coursework in Greek Language and cultural heritage, the cradle of Western Civilization and democracy.

 

To fulfill our mission, we envision a school that promises an intellectual environment that:

  • Aims to build strong personal and academic foundations and a well-rounded educational experience through a rigorous multicultural curriculum that draws on the heritage of the 4,000-year-old Greek civilization.
