A Clear and Compelling Organizational Mission

What is spoken within the halls of an organization should and often points towards an organization’s purpose. Purpose requires decisiveness; it determines one’s true north. Purpose sets an organization apart from others, challenging it to ask, “If our organization (we) ceased to exist, what would the world miss?”

Ultimately, the purpose of an organization should impact the lives of people.

At Mount Vernon, our purpose is driven by our compelling mission.
We are a school of inquiry, innovation, and impact. Grounded in Christian values, we prepare all students to be college ready, globally competitive, and engaged citizen leaders.
At Mount Vernon we seek to provide a relevant experience for students, where they design, create, and bring ideas to life. Such a purpose demands that college readiness be the ground level. Embraced by a Christian community, Mount Vernon students are the new generation of innovative thinkers, engaged citizens, and compassionate leaders.
