The Southland Mission
To prepare all its graduates for academic success in college and to see them through to persist and to graduate from college.
To succeed by comparison with any standard that one might choose to use, creating and refining a model that can be replicated throughout the nation. Southland’s vision is to close the achievement gap – addressing any of our students’ content or skills deficits – so that we may also close the opportunity gap that has historically prevented disadvantaged students from attending top tier colleges. With a rigorous curriculum, a focus on the Road to College, and ongoing support for our alumni in college, Southland proves the possible for our students: that our students have unlimited possibilities and unlimited potential.
