Values are moral principles that give meaning to one’s thoughts and actions. All members of the Santiago College community are expected to act in accordance with the following values:
Honesty is the practice of acting according to what is considered correct/just in the context of universal values and human rights.
An honest person is one who is sincere and whose actions reflect his or her ideals. Honest people can be assertive and truthful while respecting the rights and property of others and demonstrating academic integrity
Respect is the practice of acknowledging people’s rights and dignity within the context of human rights and of accepting physical, religious, cultural, racial, political and gender differences. Respect includes accepting and abiding by the rules of the community to which one belongs and being courteous.
Responsibility is the true exercise of freedom. It means that one contributes to personal and social wellbeing using the appropriate means. It requires the ability to anticipate the consequences of what one says, decides and does.
Fulfilling one’s commitments and caring for the environment are some aspects of responsibility.
Solidarity is the constant, unselfish and generous giving of oneself to others based on their needs. It is a practice that involves concrete actions.
Perseverance is the practice of doing one’s best to achieve a goal despite difficulties and adversity.
The joy of living is the ability to approach life in a positive way, living each moment to the fullest with hope and a sense of humor.
