Educational Services that Realize Christian Values and Professionalism
Upholding the Spirit of “Heart to God, Hand to Man”, The Salvation Army seeks to provide holistic education to let the community understand what education professionalism and education missions mean. It is the value of individuals, instead of the value of market, that The Salvation Army’s educational services stress.
We value every child as a precious gift sent from God to our educational service units for nurturing.
The provision of educational services that realize Christian values and professionalism is our vision. It is also a two-in-one direction for our services. The former responses to “Heart to God” while the latter “Hand to Man”. To realize Christian values entails the promotion of love education. The commitment to professionalism refers to how the school sponsoring body and our staff team constantly enhance educational services to keep abreast of the time in order to witness God.
“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
