BELIEFS

 Our school’s Beliefs are:

  • Auctoritasthe human being was created in the image and likeness of God, and has been gifted with intellect and will to know and love God and all His creation.
  • only by developing intellectual and spiritual power to their paramount heights can the human being reach his full stature as image of God. 
  • the end and essence of the education imparted at SLS is the formation in our students of the perfect image of Jesus Christ. 
  • great things cannot be understood or achieved but through work, and maximum performance in study, if the Christian happens to be a student. 
  • work in itself is beautiful because through it man becomes a partner of God in the natural creation and in the building of His supernatural Kingdom. 
  • youth is a time for generosity, for self-giving to high ideals, for setting out after great adventures. 
  • young people are quite capable of falling in love with God and offering Him, out of love, the best of their intellects and of their hearts. 
  • it is our responsibility to provide our students with an academic and spiritual environment conducive to learning that will guarantee our students will fit the Profile of Graduates.
