We are just as committed to teaching academic excellence as we are to teaching character through our school’s core values, The 5 C’s:
- Common Sense
Embraced school wide, these core values help us to create an environment throughout campus that allows students to grow in confidence and with a sense of responsibility to their community.
The 5 C’s help guide our behavior as we strive to be a reflection of Christ in all that we say and do. Students are recognized and acknowledged for modeling The 5 C’s.
Adventist education is based on developing the whole child to reflect all that Jesus created them to be. Because of this foundation and the continued pursuit of high standards, Adventist education has a worldwide reputation for outstanding curriculum and high achievements, using best teaching practices that are Christ-centered. Our philosophy is centered around teaching the whole child and helping each student reach their highest potential.
We strive to make Jesus a part of every piece of curriculum. We also believe that we are to follow these foundational goals of education:
- Restore the image of God in every child
- Develop each child holistically: body, mind and spirit
- Teach students to be thinkers and not mere reflectors
- Equip students to share the gospel of Christ
- Prepare students to be successful for the 21st Century
Our process for outlining standards and choosing curriculum involves three levels of educators from the local conference, the North Pacific Union (NPUC) and the North American Division (NAD). They are responsible for research, examination, evaluation and implementation of new curriculum. We strive to use the best curriculum available to fit best teaching practices.
