Special Character Education

LAC’s Special Character is what distinguishes Adventist Schools from other schools. We are purposely Christian; upholding the faith, values and lifestyle of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Being a school of Special Character does not mean that we merely conduct worships and run Bible classes, rather, our Special Character reflects who we are and what we stand for. Our Special Character permeates our curriculum, influences our policies and procedures, and can be seen in the every-day interactions between our staff and our students.

The ASPIRE programme is designed to intentionally teach the values that we, as Christians, hold dear.

One vital aspect of ASPIRE is to provide students with the opportunity, the inspiration and the determination to reach the potential God intended for them. Through stories, instruction, mentoring, coming into contact with inspirational people and providing students with a time to reflect, it is our intention to give our students a vision of what they can become and the determination to pursue that vision.
