OUR VALUES

Ashé Prep’s school culture is based on the seven principles of Kwanzaa, the Nguzo Saba:

UMOJA/UNITY

We come together as a family, community, nation, and people.

NIA/PURPOSE

We know the purpose of our lives and we build our community together.

KUUMBA/CREATIVITY

All that we touch in our lives and our community is more beautiful.

IMANI/CONVICTION

We believe in ourselves, our family, our community, our people, and our collective future.

KUJICHAGULIA/SELF-DETERMINATION

We define ourselves, name ourselves, and speak for ourselves.

UJAMAA/COOPERATIVE ECONOMICS

We build our own businesses and profit from them together.

UJIMA/COLLECTIVE WORK & RESPONSIBILITY

We build our community together, take on each other’s problems, and solve them together.
