What do you mean by character?

Great question! The simple answer is that we define character in four segments, heart, mind, soul, strength and the 8 character traits as listed below.

  • HEART- We believe that graduates should demonstrate civic and moral leadership, in order “to do good; seek justice, and correct oppression.”
    • Collaboration
    • Virtue
  • SOULS- We believe graduates should demonstrate an appreciation for the Lordship of Christ, “not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord.”
    • Devotion
    • Self-Awareness
  • MIND- We believe graduates should demonstrate reasoned and productive lifestyles, filled with the “Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge, and with all kinds of skills.”
    • Discernment
    • Entrepreneurship
  • STRENGTH- We believe graduates should demonstrate dispositional strength and behavioral readiness, so that they “never tire of doing what is good”.
    • Resiliency
    • Responsiveness
