True education means more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come. . .
Ellen G. White, Education, p.13
Prescott College’s mission is to instill and nurture Seventh-day Adventist Christian values in our students through all aspects of College life; academic excellence, Bible-based worship, care and concern for others and to provide students with responsible and Christ-centred leadership in the community.
We Learn. We Value. We Serve.
Our Core Values:
Integrity is essentially doing the right thing even when no one is watching. Through everyday practice and modelling of values, our aim is for students to be confident in upholding moral principles, such as honesty and fairness, in all areas of their life.
Respecting one another is the foundation to a peaceful community and is an attitude our world needs more of today. Our students are encouraged to value diversity in culture, beliefs, opinions and choices that other people make, with a genuine love for one another.
While we love seeing our students’ happy faces, joy is not just being happy. Rather, joy stems from a strong values and beliefs system that allows us to be grateful regardless of circumstance. Prescott College students are encouraged to know Christ personally and to claim His promises, which will give them a spiritual sense of joy. Our school community fosters joy through building positive relationships and support systems while providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for students to flourish.
Prescott College recognises God as the personal Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer. He is the source of all life, knowledge, wisdom and truth. The biblical truths of the origin, nature and destiny of mankind teach that each person is created with the power of choice. It is important, therefore, that students are encouraged to choose Christ as their personal Saviour, and to develop a lasting relationship with God.
