斑鸠’s core values are forged in bronze in the middle of campus.
这些值, 还有红衣主教美德, are quite literally the foundation of our school 和 are intentionally lived 和 taught via our student life structure, 在教室里, 在GPK电子的运动场上. 学生 learn of their duty to themselves, their units 和 dorms, to their school. This may sound like a lot for a young person to h和le, 但在斑鸠, we believe they are up to that challenge.
斑鸠 educates its students for leadership 和 responsible citizenship in society by developing 和 nurturing the whole individual – mind, 精神, 和 body – through integrated programs that emphasize the cultivation of character.斑鸠的任务
斑鸠的任务 statement is phrased in relatively modern language, but the principles 和 traditions from which it springs go back to the 学校成立于1894年.
这就是对原则的关注, 而不仅仅是一个地方, that guides us as we meet students’ needs, whether it’s during a traditional school year, 在这个夏天, or within the parallel 和 coeducational, 然而,独特的, systems of the boys 和 girls schools. 学生 do not merely attend 斑鸠; they become part of the 斑鸠 Story – a story that is rooted in tradition 和 innovation.
领导 & 字符
Telling the truth, doing what is right, 和 considering the needs of others. These are the building blocks of strong character. Building blocks that great leaders in the making come to possess 和 use as the foundation to hone their skills 和 strengths.
在卡尔弗, GPK电子以身作则, giving our students 和 summer campers the tools, the underst和ing 和 the moment-by-moment application of what they’ve learned to excel but, 更重要的是, how to view adversity not as a problem, but as an opportunity to lead others by doing what is right.
最后, 斑鸠 graduates thrive in their future endeavors in college, in the workplace 和 in their personal lives because these values of courage, honor 和 service to others are at the core of their experience here.
斑鸠 believes that we should think for ourselves. 为实现这一目标, 斑鸠 does not merely h和 students the answers, but rather gives them a deep underst和ing of every topic 和 its impact on the world.
在某种意义上, the rigorous exploration dem和ed by this pursuit of academic truth that feeds into the holistic approach of a character-building 斑鸠 education, giving young people the critical thinking skills they need to foster the ability to distinguish the wise from the unwise 和 the courage 和 strength to act on those perceptions.
斑鸠’s holistic approach does not stop at the classroom door, nor is it limited to the barracks or dorm. 斑鸠的任务 comm和s that we develop students “mind, 精神 和 body.” Spirit is intentionally placed in the center, recognizing the balance they need in their life. They have a duty to themselves to fulfill their commitments, but also underst和 the impact of making those commitments can have.
They are also taught the skills to underst和 和 meet their mental, 社会, 道德, 精神和身体的需要. By teaching them to explore 精神uality 和 道德ity, 斑鸠 students come to learn they have a place in the world, 和, 更重要的是, 他们所做的对他人很重要, 和 that they themselves matter to others, 在他们的单位, 在他们的宿舍, 和 within the greater 斑鸠 community. 当他们离开卡尔弗时, they are able to navigate the greater global community 和 make their way in it confidently 和 maturely.
斑鸠 believes that in a diverse community, people overcome their natural inclination to adhere solely to what they know. 斑鸠 students live, work, 和 play in an atmosphere that is naturally diverse. 宽阔的, 学生的全球视野, faculty 和 staff from other countries, cultures 和 backgrounds bring to academic 和 residential life only serves to ensure students have a wealth of information to draw on when analyzing 和 making a decision, 和 to underst和 the impact of those decisions on the greater community. And with a residential community where every student plays a key role in the success of that community, the respect for other cultures 和 traditions is built up, strengthening the experience for everyone.
