Vanguard's Creed

We believe.

We are the young men and women of Vanguard.

We are college and career bound.

We are exceptional—not because we say it, but because we work hard at it.

We will not falter in the face of any obstacle placed before us.

We are dedicated, committed and focused.

We never succumb to mediocrity, uncertainty or fear.

We never fail because we never give up.

We make no excuses.

We choose to live honestly, nonviolently, and honorably.

We respect ourselves and, in doing so, respect all people.

We have a future for which we are accountable.

We have a responsibility to our families, community, and world.

We are our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers.

We believe in ourselves.

We believe in each other

We believe in Vanguard College Prep.
