Our Mission & Values

Our Mission

At SELA, we provide each child with a unique and personal learning experience. Every student will receive a full immersion education of the highest academic quality, through an engaging curriculum which inspires and motivates them to strive for knowledge and understanding and prepares them for challenging, higher level work. SELA students will grow to be bilingual, globally competent citizens.

Our Values

Our values are encapsulated in SELA’s Early Global learner profile. 

Multilingual 

We immerse our students in a second and third language through play, research, and hands-on experimentation. We communicate confidently and creatively, in more than one language. 

Community 

We build strong relationships between students, teachers, and parents creating a genuine feeling of family. We value opinions and foster a warm and friendly environment. 

Inquiry 

We nurture curiosity, developing skills for exploration and research. 

Caring 

We show empathy, compassion, and respect. We have a commitment to service, and we act to make a positive difference. 

Principled 

We act with integrity, honesty, and we respect others. We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences. 

Open-Minded 

We appreciate our own cultures, as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view and grow from the experience. 

Balanced 

We balance all aspects of our lives – intellectual, physical, social, and emotional – to achieve well-being for ourselves.
