Education alone is not the solution to the world’s problems. An education does not necessarily make students good. It can, in fact, make them puffed up and vain. Knowledge is power. The goal of a classical education is to form the mind and character of the student so that he will use the power of knowledge for good ends.
Every school has a culture which is a reflection of its leadership. We strive to form the mind and character of the students according to Christian values and beliefs.
“You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act, rather a habit.”– Aristotle
