  • Service to the Community – In line with the values of the foundresses, the College stimulates within students a sense of responsibility and dedication to the community through selfless service to family, friends, colleagues and those in need.
  • Justice & Peace – Acknowledging our place within the world, the College emboldens students to identify injustices and to contribute peaceful solutions to them.
  • Development of the Whole Person – A balanced education, curricular and co-curricular, aims to inspire holistic personal growth in students as lifelong learners.
  • Cultivation of Personal Moral Responsibility – We expect students to develop as ethically responsible human beings, through serious reflection and active engagement.
  • Diversity & Inclusion – We welcome all, regardless of background, and encourage critical thought and ideas in the pursuit of truth.
