Journey to Excellence

Interpersonal Relationships

The goal, Interpersonal Relationships, 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 a sense of self-worth, skills in inter-personal relationships, an understanding of the responsibilities of family membership and the ability to respond with sensitivity to the needs of others.


  • Recognize that Godís ideal for the basic unit of society is the family.
  • Develop an appreciation for the diversity of individuals.
  • Acquire knowledge, attitudes and skills essential to meeting family responsibilities, whether living alone or with others.
  • Recognize that Godís unconditional love gives one self-worth.
  • Value sexuality in the context of Godís ideal.
