Mission and Values

Paul Habans Charter School prepares all students for success in college and a life of opportunity and choice by developing their academic skills, lifelong passions, and personal character.

Scholars and teachers at Paul Habans Charter School embrace four values: Perseverance, Excellence, Courage and Community.


Perseverance: 
With hard work and determination, we put in the energy it takes to accomplish our goals.

  • We never quit because we know we will succeed.
  • We keep our sights on our goals and keep working until we reach them.
  • We put forth the effort to do our best work.


Excellence: 
We do our best work in everything we do.

  • We ask ourselves if we are giving 100%.
  • We do what we have to, only better than expected.
  • We go above and beyond and sweat the small stuff to make sure the work is done right.


Courage:
 We do what is right, even when it’s terrifying.

  • We are brave enough to do the right thing even when no one is looking.
  • We are not afraid to take risks.
  • We embrace the unknown.


Community: 
We believe we are part of something greater than ourselves.

  • We do our part to help each other succeed.
  • We value the ideas and effort that others bring to the team.
  • We collaborate with members inside and outside of our community to achieve our goals.
