Service: Commitment to Compassion

"Commitment to Compassion" is a core value esteemed at TMI. We strive for service in order to instill the values of empathy and compassion for others, which are lived out in concrete acts of service in our community. We seek to serve the world around us through acts of charity, mentoring, and ecological stewardship. The student-led Interact Club leads many of the community-wide service projects throughout the school year. There are many opportunities for both parents and students to get involved with campus activities and projects; from the Booster Club to Family Association and special event committees to the Annual Fund, you can volunteer wherever your passions lie.
