Students shall conduct themselves in a Christian manner; the standard by which students should relate to each other and their superiors includes honesty, respect, kindness, humility and a servant-spirit;
Discipline flows from the principle that each student is personally accountable for his or her behavior; consistent standards of discipline shall be applied;
Doing one's best is the goal in all studies, and activities;
Seeking God's approval is more important than gaining the approval of the world.
