Goals & Skills
The Lord has appointed the youth to be His helping hand.—Testimonies for the Church 7:64.
With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world!—Education, 271.
We have an army of youth today who can do much if they are properly directed and encouraged. We want our children to believe the truth. We want them to be blessed of God. We want them to act a part in well-organized plans for helping other youth. Let all be so trained that they may rightly represent the truth, giving the reason of the hope that is within them, and honoring God in any branch of the work where they are qualified to labor.
The goal of Remnant Preparatory School is to prepare individual students for the joy of service in this world, and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come.
One of our objectives as a school is to encourage students to be the persons God has called them to be today, this year, and forever. Students, teachers, and parents will work together, remembering that God is our strength, Jesus is our Master Teacher, and the Holy Spirit is our Helper.
This “school without walls” purposes to be the context where teachers and students can develop a close and meaningful relationship despite being geographically far apart.
Students will enjoy learning, collaborating with their classmates, and building a Christ-like character. The personal discipline gained from Remnant Prep will influence students in their personal lives as they learn how to serve God and their fellow men.
Students will learn interpersonal skills as they seek to understand themselves and their feelings. They learn how to build and practice self-control and discipline, and to learn from experience.
Students will practice interpersonal skills, such as developing friendships through communication, cooperation, negotiation, sharing, empathizing, and listening.
Students will respond to the limits of everyday life with responsibility, adaptability, flexibility, and integrity.
Students will practice good judgment, as they use wisdom, evaluate situations, and make decisions based on appropriate values.
