Journey to Excellence

Responsible Citizenship

The goal, Responsible Citizenship, supports the unique philosophy of Adventist education. Essential core elements clarify and expand the goal statements and are intentionally infused into a curriculum that teaches students to:
Each student will:
Develop an understanding of cultural and historical heritages, affirm a belief in the dignity and worth of others and accept responsibility for local, national and global environments.


  • Exhibit concern and sensitivity for other peoples and cultures.
  • Participate actively in local, national and global communities.
  • Understand the functions of governments and their impact on individuals and society.
  • Use a biblical perspective to analyze history and current events.
  • Assume an active role in nurturing and preserving Godís creation.
