Our Vision and Values
Not all schools are the same. A secular education, with its humanistic ideals, praises man and what he has made and discovered and understood; but even among Christian schools, there can be differences. We consider the singular purpose of Christian Education is that it should lead students to think and live for the glory of God in every aspect of their lives. This feeds directly into our educational philosophy for what a distinctly Christian education means at Rehoboth, and provides the vision we have for our children:
By 2019, Rehoboth Christian College will be recognised for excellence in the provision of a distinctly Christian education program that honours Jesus Christ as Lord of all, utilising the best innovations and resources of a 21st century learning environment.
We believe that it is our role as educators to orient students Biblically toward the knowledge of God, humanity, and the rest of God’s creation, so that they would seek His will to see things as He sees them and to engage with, and influence, the culture in which we live.
We believe in partnering with parents to develop the whole child, which includes their spiritual, moral, and academic growth, and their personal and social development. Our aim is to inspire them to excel, to be intolerant of mediocrity, and to make wise choices.
Over 50 years of providing Christ-centred education, we have developed several characteristics that are “distinctly Rehoboth” and help explain who we are and what we value.
