Sandy Lake Academy’s Mission/Vision
Service Above Self
Educating the Whole Person to the Glory of God
Sandy Lake Academy offers a comprehensive curriculum, designed to develop the whole person by focusing on the academic, spiritual, physical and social aspects of the student.
As a Christian school, we strive to provide an environment and education which will represent our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the ideals that he personified in his life and teachings. High standards are important to us as we believe that “whatsoever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Cor. 10:31 Therefore, we expect our staff and students to work together to bring glory to God through our school.
We believe that true education cultivates well-rounded students; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To accomplish this goal, we have developed the five pillars of our vision for Sandy Lake Academy. It is our desire that through each facet of the five pillars of our vision, our graduates will be impacted in the following ways:
5 Pillars of Our Vision
Our Spiritual Program
We want our students to develop a closer walk with Jesus while attending SLA, but we also desire to prepare them to take the next step in their walk with Christ, developing into mature Christian leaders. Whether or not students become leaders in their careers, we ultimately want them to become leaders in the Church and the community.
Our Academic Program
Our students should be well prepared for the continuing process of cultural change and will understand the need for ongoing personal growth and lifelong learning. They will be well-equipped academically to pursue higher education, having developed a thirst for knowledge and attained enhanced critical thinking skills.
Our Music Program
Our graduates should possess a broad range of skills in technical and artistic areas which will give them a comprehensive foundation on which to begin their career paths. They will exhibit self-confidence developed through performance and will be better equipped to express themselves and their ideas.
Our Practical Skills Program
It is our desire for students to have a working knowledge of the basic life skills appropriate for independent living. They should possess a multitude of skills to be better-rounded through all facets of life.
Our Health & Fitness Program
We strive to instill in each student a positive attitude towards the development and maintenance of healthy bodies and minds. They will realize that a healthy lifestyle creates the necessary foundation for learning and a productive life. We want them to recognize that our bodies are the temple of God and we honor Him when we properly care for our bodies. Students will be willing to promote healthy living within their families and communities.
