Good academic achievements are based on the seven guiding principles formulated by the founder of the college, Mr. John Corlett, whose conception is that training is beyond teaching in the classroom and is aimed at preparing students for real life. The objective of the entire teaching staff is to contribute to multilateral development of the full potential of each student and the formation of harmonious personalities with a good academic background, strong physically and mentally and tolerant of different cultures and religions. Students are encouraged to develop leadership qualities and their individuality, while creating good relations with others. The school focuses on a healthy lifestyle, sports and activities occupying an important place in their leisure time.
