Requirements and Qualifications

Integrity: The students and parents in our co-op are expected to uphold integrity by acting and reacting in a respectful manner, respecting the opinions and beliefs of others, having good and healthy dialog in our discussions and in interactions with peers.
Good Citizenship: In our co-op, we instill the value of Good Citizenship by providing students and parents with opportunities to serve the community, respect elders, practice servant-leadership skills, and advocate for justice to improve society as a whole.
Respect: Be grateful, encouraging, diligent, and humble. Know when to speak up for yourself and when to listen. Respect nature, respect the belief of others that differ from your own and respect the rules of conduct of CAO and our co-op.
Hebraic Ethicism: What does this mean? At our core, Hebraic Ethicism simply means that our families honor and embrace the Hebraic principles of wisdom, courage, knowledge, environmentalism, and analysis of factual evidence. We advocate for justice, peace, and love in our communities. We allow ourselves space to seek out the truth on an individual level. These ideals can be embraced regardless of a family’s background.
