While academics are important, they are not the ultimate purpose of Christian education. In our College we focus our attention on the development of character alongside the development of knowledge and skills.
Our vision for Character Development is to promote thoughtfulness, self-discipline and personal responsibility in students and develop character qualities of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).
It is not so much the content we cover in the classroom that defines our educational philosophy, but the manner in which we shape the learning character of our students. We seek to encourage our students to become learners who are intellectually humble, who are compassionate towards each other and who are informed participants who are actively engaged in the world around them.
We do not separate our character development from intellectual, physical or emotional development. Character is something that develops as we grow intellectually, physically and emotionally, informing the ways we engage in activities towards learning, and in turn being shaped by this process.
We want to encourage students to see learning and the development of their character as their primary focus at school, rather than simply their achievement of results. Success is knowing that you have done your best.
