Arroyo Verde is a part of the No Excuses University network. We have begun by developing the following commitment statement: "All staff members at Arroyo are committed to educating every student in a way that prepares them for college. We are dedicated to three core beliefs: (1) We are committed learners, (2) We are character centered, and (3) We are college ready.

Each Arroyo Verde classroom has chosen to spotlight a college or university. Our classroom's adopted college is my alma mater, Westminster College. Westminster has a student population of approximately 3,000, and is nestled in the beautiful Wasatch Mountain community of Salt Lake City, Utah. It is listed in the top 15% of colleges and universities in the United States.

The classes at Westminster are small allowing for close interaction/communication between faculty members and students. Westminster treats its students as individuals, care for them as people, challenges them as learners, and helps them to mature and grow. Graduates leave Westminster College dedicated to a lifetime of learning, service and education. I feel fortunate and proud to be a graduate of Westminster College.
