Academic Excellence Commitment

The College’s mission, curriculum, instruction and student assessments are aligned and implemented in ways that reflect current knowledge about the learning process and the preparation cadets need for officership in The Salvation Army Western Territory.

To be considered excellent, these four elements are integrated with field training experience and a pervasive commitment to spiritual formation and officer development. This is to develop in our cadets conceptual understanding and appropriate cognitive and ministerial skills that cadets will be able to utilize when faced with new situations and challenges in their assignments wherever located.
