The educational activities of the College are designed to provide opportunities for all students to achieve their maximum development intellectually, spiritually, socially and physically.

The process of education involves the continued development of a set of values upon which all decisions depend. Christian Education seeks to enhance sensitivity to values that are in harmony with God’s will. The development of character and personality based upon a love for God, unselfish concern for others and personal self-respect, are basic to all curricular objectives.

Seventh-day Adventists believe in the reality of God the Creator, and that we are created in God’s image. We believe the aim of Christian Education is the restoration of the image of God in people through Jesus Christ.

We believe that an understanding of the world and ourselves is enhanced by an acceptance of the Bible as a measure of reality and truth. We have intelligent powers of choice and are accountable to God in every aspect of life.
