Our Philosophy

Seventh-day Adventists value every individual as a unique person created in the image of God with distinctive gifts, talents and abilities.

It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy and wider service in the world to come." Education p. 13.
