  • Use critical and creative thinking skills in “real-world” experiences.
  • Develop one’s intellectual potential in natural sciences and mathematics; arts and humanities; social sciences and applied arts.
  • Utilize effective study techniques to locate, organize and learn information.
  • Apply the principles of life-long learning.
  • Approach all intellectual pursuits from a biblical perspective.
