VALUE EDUCATION COURSE

St. Claret Pre-university College believes in the holistic formation of its students. We at SCPC consider education as the process of forming one to live, work, and definitely an education of the heart to love and grow in human virtues. Hence, Value Education Course is given utmost importance, on par with the academic and curricular studies. Every week, one hour is set aside for each class for the imparting of value education. On chosen days, workshops, seminars, field visits, video shows, etc. will also be held.

 

The goal of the Value Education Course is: “Self-actualization for Self-transcendence”. Each student is helped to actualise one’s potential for the purpose of transcending oneself for the benefit of oneself, others and the whole humanity. The topics selected focus on three levels of selftranscendence: Egocentric self-transcendence [transcending one’s own immediate needs for better formation of oneself and achievement of long term goals], Philanthropic self-transcendence [transcending oneself for the benefit of other human beings, out of love for them] and Theocentric self-transcendence [transcending oneself for love of God and for His purposes, and the God-centered love of humanity]. Attendance for Value Education classes is compulsory.
