Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to: • develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men • master the basic academic skills • value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended
