Our Purpose

Our purpose is to deliver to our students inspiring, relevant and engaging learning opportunities in a welcoming and caring Christian environment.

Our Values

  • Learning
    We value learning: where students demonstrate resilience and persistence as creative, adept learners who are not afraid to take risks as they learn and grow.
  • Compassion
    We value compassion: where students develop their hearts and minds as they care for, respect, support and nurture one another.  
  • Courage
    We value courage: where students become risk-takers who take ownership of their learning, set high expectations and are not afraid to speak up for others and themselves.    
  • Service
    We value service: where students reflect on their place in the world as they desire to reach out and support people and groups on a local and global level.  
  • Excellence
    We value excellence: where students continually strive for excellence as they set and exceed their own goals in their learning.  
  • Respect
    We value respect: where every member of the College community respects themselves, others, and creation as they demonstrate stewardship and care for God’s earth and all who live on it.
