"The purpose of education is to glorify God; to enable men and women to answer the prayer, “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10. God invites teachers to be His helping hand in carrying out this purpose. He asks them to bring into their work the principles of heaven, the A B C of true education."

Teacher, Grades 7 & 8

This embraces more than merely having a knowledge of books. It takes in everything that is good, virtuous, righteous, and holy.

"The true teacher is not satisfied with second-rate work...It is his ambition to inspire them with principles of truth, obedience, honor, integrity, and purity—principles that will make them a positive force for the stability and uplifting of society. He desires them, above all else, to learn life's great lesson of unselfish service." Ed 29
