Core Values: 



SSF fosters personal relationships that are founded on patience, trust, enthusiasm, and responsibility. As a community, we encourage one another to grow achieve, enjoy, and prepare for the future. Community makes the "Education for Life" philosophy a reality. 

Empowerment & Respect

SSF embraces and respects the variety of knowledge, skills, and abilities possessed by each of the diverse individuals in the SSF community. We seek to create an environment in which our residents, staff, and board members can excel in broad areas of thought and action as independent, unique participants in the SSF experience and as leaders and vital members of the community. 


SSF celebrates diversity in thought and culture, and we value greater diversity in our student residents, staff, and board membership. We believe that our differences allow us to expand our horizons and achieve a broader understanding of ourselves and the world in which we live. 


SSF is committed to the responsible, effective management and utilization of its financial resources and residential facilities. We owe this both to our financial supporters and to our student residents.  

Connectivity & Participation

SSF operates on a relationship-building philosophy that includes all clubs, donors, staff, board members, students, and prospects. Through proactive and consistent engagement, we provide opportunities for individuals to connect and participate with SSF to advance our mission.
