Our Educational Values
We believe that worshiping God, growing as individuals, relating with others and serving in our world are the key to unlocking an academic experience that strengthens character, sharpens competence, and prepares for service. We also believe that an education emphasizing the integration of faith and learning lays the foundation for and is in perfect concert with our mission. We are committed to a life of worship and spiritual growth, and actively look for reflective and practical ways the Christian faith intersects with the disciplines we teach in the classroom.
The integration of faith and learning is based on the shared understanding that the extent to which we do our work consciously as Christians, results in our professional lives becoming an offering of worship to God, and our faith giving greater significance to the questions we struggle with in our work and in our lives. In other words, we are whole individuals and recognize the deficiency of a compartmentalized life. Based on this foundation, our faith informs our work and makes it distinctive.
