Rockway Student and Graduate Vision
Forming Faith…Building Character
From a Christian Mennonite faith perspective, and in partnership with families and congregations, we are committed to walk with students to help form and transform their learning, character and faith. Our desire is that students and graduates will learn, grow in faith and build character as they practice virtues that demonstrate the best of who they are. With grace we will walk with students as they practice becoming responsible, globally-minded, compassionate and reflective learners. We refer to these are the four pillars:
Teachers teach with purpose and passion and students learn to demonstrate academic self-discipline, focus and determination.
Teachers model hospitality and love and open the world in their teaching and students learn from the experiences and perspectives of others alongside seeking opportunities for cross-cultural learning and friendships.
Teachers build safe, nurturing and stimulating classes for learning and students learn to work together and collaborate with others.
Teachers model their Christian faith commitment and help their students engage and reflect on questions and convictions that matter and students are encouraged to ask questions and seek to align life choices and faith convictions.
