Our mission and values
Statement of values and beliefs
St Clare’s welcomes students and staff of all nationalities and cultures who will benefit from, and contribute to, our learning community. Living and studying together, we learn from one another. We are enriched and challenged by a diversity of views and ideas.
“To advance international education and understanding”
The College aims to provide an environment where our students and our staff:
- develop their intellects, their imagination, and independence of mind
- engage in creative, aesthetic, and physical activities
- learn from, and contribute to, our local community
- develop a sense of environmental awareness and responsibility to the international community
- value honesty, compassion, and intercultural understanding
- take personal responsibility for work and conduct
