Branches' Way - Grow Deeper, Climb Higher
Worth- We believe each person has sacred value, is created in the image of God and has inherent self-worth. People matter and therefore are our priority.
Wonder- We dream and then co-create the future with students and families which means we do not wait for the future to just happen.
Welcome- At Branches all people are welcomed, received and valued in contrast to the rejection and exclusion that people all too often experience in the world.
With - What we do is transformational and not transactional. We connect with people and build relationships as opposed to treating people like a number or a service unit. Together we become the Branches family.
Walk- While the destination is important, we recognize the journey is the essential part. The day-to-day work we do is like walking with people on the journey in which we all explore, discover and become renewed.
Words- We create a positive, hopeful environment at Branches through the ways and the words we speak to others. Be our words fun, friendly, firm or whatever, we always affirm the other and speak with love.
