Philosophy of the School
The Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of education is Christ-Centeredness. Adventists believe that, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, God’s Character and purposes can be understood as revealed in the Bible, in Jesus Christ and in nature. The distinctive characteristics of Adventist education derived from the Bible and writings of Ellen G White point to the redemptive aim of true education: to restore human beings into the image of their Maker.

Education is the harmonious development of the physical, mental, social and the spiritual powers. It is the work of true education to develop this power, to train the youth to be thinkers, and not mere reflectors of other men’s thought. Instead of confining their study to that which men have said or written, let students be directed to the services of truth, to the vast fields opened for research in nature and revelation. Let them contemplate the great facts of duty and destiny, and the mind will expand and strengthen.
Aims and Objectives
The educational program of Spicer Higher Secondary School is based on the philosophy that: “True education means more than the pursuit of a certain course of study.” It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man. The students in the High School age group are in the formative years of their lives. Formation of a sound character of wholesome attitudes and proper habits is very essential for the promise of a successful life. It not only calls for more than the accumulation of facts or knowledge, but also the development of a sound philosophy of life.
To be meaningful Education must be holistic. The physical, social, intellectual and spiritual aspects of the student must receive attention and training. The program of the School is planned and executed with this objective in mind. Therefore, it is essential that both the parents/guardian and student co-operate with the school in implementing this program.
