SSIS is a college preparatory school committed to the intellectual and personal development of each student in preparation for a purposeful life as a global citizen.

Our mission statement is both our commitment to our students and families and our challenge to ourselves. We expect that all of our students are on track to apply to a college or university which provides the best fit for them in their continuing education and is recognized for excellence in their chosen field. We offer a rigorous educational program but are equally concerned with the maturation of our students into young men and women of outstanding character. We believe that life is about more than just a career and that each person should examine his or her place in the world and look for ways in which he or she can serve the greater good of the community, not just personal self-interest. Finally, we see the world as an increasingly globalized and interconnected place. We are first rooted in culture, nationality, language and beliefs, but we are called upon to live in this community with those who are similar to us and with those who are different from us. We believe these are all exciting challenges which we face individually and as a community at SSIS.
