Vision, Mission, Philosophy
Motto: Teaching Children of the King
Scripture: And what does the Lord require of us? To do justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God. Micah 6:8
Vision: Competent Compassionate Christians – Each child will be well-equipped with the knowledge and abilities to “do the right thing” and the relationship skills to “do the kind thing.” He or she will remain teachable throughout life and truly “follow Jesus.”
Mission: To Bless Children – Rogers School provides a strong academic program with valuable enrichments in a Seventh-day Adventist context. Students gain eternal hope and personal significance as they become:
1. Effective Thinkers and Communicators
2. Positive Self-managers
3. Life-long Learners
4. Responsible Citizens
5. Lovers and Creators of Beauty
6. Vibrant Christians .
Philosophy: Educating young people at the elementary school level provides the foundational opportunity to shape how students see, live in, and relate to the world around them. At Rogers School, students are encouraged to relate to a world that needs godly people who think clearly, live responsibly, act nobly, and love generously, even as they plan for eternity.
Rogers School is founded on Christian teachings and values as understood and appreciated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Central to those teachings is the belief that every person is created in the image of God as a being of inestimable value and worth, imbued with powers of intelligence, creativity, and stewardship, similar to those of the Creator.
Seventh-day Adventists believe that the work of education and the work of redemption are one. Every power – spiritual, social, physical, and mental – is to be kept in balance and is to be developed in tune with the
kingdom of God and His righteousness. The home, school, and church cooperate in this effort.
The home is the first and most important place of learning. The school provides academic skills and appreciations while supporting the home and church in modeling spiritual growth and character formation.
