* To create self-confidence that will enable them to serve and act cheerfully
* To include personal discipline, dynamic leadership, and true affection in all contacts
* To mold their capacity to brilliantly express their individuality
* To bring out their dormant faculties and detect defects, and to cultivate and improve their creative abilities
* To help our children develop a healthy resistance against temptations in the atmosphere in which they grow
* To provide an atmosphere that will enable our children to grow with noble ideals, healthy emotions, and physical discipline.
