To proclaim, teach and apply the Holy Scriptures—which are the inspired, inerrant Word of the Triune God—as they fit each setting of school life.

To equip students for faithful and capable citizenship to the glory of God.
To enable students to become well-rounded individuals by providing curricular and extra-curricular opportunities as Christian educational experiences to the glory of God.

Our graduates display an active faith life in their churches, workplaces, communities and the world.
They possess a strong academic base.
They are effective in both oral and in written communication.
They possess the ability to solve problems and work cooperatively.
