Venture Values

Our Pillar Values


Venture is committed to providing a unique and high quality educational experience to the families in our community—an education built on our pillar values of excellence, service, and leadership.

Service

Service to others makes learning meaningful. Teachers and students learn about the needs of the surrounding community, nation, and world. Students apply the skills they are learning at Venture to address those needs. Service within the school and the community is an integral part of our educational program.

Excellence

"Work of excellence is transformational. Once a student sees that he or she is capable of excellence, that student is never quite the same. There is a new self-image, a new notion of possibility. There is an appetite for excellence." - Ron Berger, An Ethic of Excellence. Students at Venture are provided with tools and opportunities to achieve excellent work.

Leadership

Habits of service and excellence provide key supports in developing leadership skills. One of the reasons students and teachers work hard to understand the needs of the community is so that they can provide leadership in responding to those needs. Students have many opportunities to think, direct, delegate, articulate, plan, and execute. They learn to lead by making a difference now in their school and their community. As part of this work, they also learn about and make connections with great leaders throughout history.

Complementary Values


Together with our three pillar values described above, seven additional complementary values form the bedrock upon which the programs and practices of Venture are built.
