Creating Ethical and Moral Leaders
Spiritual and character development is one of the four pillars at the foundation of St. John’s Northwestern education. Along with academics, leadership growth, and athletics and wellness, it promotes wholeness in all areas of life. Our spiritual program forms our students, regardless of faith, into real leaders for the real world. Drawing upon the foundations of classical orthodox Anglicanism, we emphasize the biblical principles of love for God and love for others, servant leadership, ethical behavior, and the intrinsic value of all persons.
Through our values, we develop young people to practice ethical principles every day, treat others with dignity and respect, and value differences and strengths. As a school, our faculty members aim to educate students to develop to their full potential and fulfill their unique dreams. Our students develop leadership that motivates others to achieve various goals, exploit opportunities, and value selfless service. Committing our institution and all members of our Academies to our mission and these core values over time transforms what we espouse into values of action that we see daily through the actions and behaviors of our students.
