(For the full story click here...) Core Values: “Living LARGE” 3D Academy has 5 core values. We strive to apply and live out these values in how we relate to one another as staff as well as how we treat our students: 1. Love 2. Adulthood 3. Responsibility 4. Growth 5. Environment To capture these five core values in an “easy-to-remember” catch phrase, we use the slogan: “Living LARGE” “Living Large” is an expression that implies luxurious living. We believe that in applying our 5 core values, life on campus and the staff and students experience, of the 3D program will be one of “luxurious living” – not in a material sense, but in a personal sense. We believe that by living out the 5 core values, our students will experience great quality of life. 1. Love - Following the guideline that is found in 1 Cor 13:4-8 to create a “safe” environment within which students can develop and grow 2. Adulthood - We strive to assist our students in transitioning into adulthood through adult-to-adult communications, encouraging initiative and independent decision-making 3. Responsibility - Teaching our students about consequences and accountability, self-management and the ability to work within “chain of command” 4. Growth - Encouraging students to step out of their comfort zones and be “stretched” ie. pushing beyond one’s own limits 5. Environment - Providing a “melting pot” of diversity and the opportunity to learn from the uniqueness of others. An experiential, hands-on approach to learning takes precedence.
