Mission Statement

RAES exists to educate, train, and lead students to develop a harmonious and balanced relationship of the mind, body, and spirit.  And to equip them for the joy of service, to be a transforming influence in this world, and to be prepared for the world to come.

Philosophy of Education      

RAES believes man and the universe to be the handiwork of a Divine Creator who guides and sustains all. God is considered the Source of all knowledge and wisdom, and His revealed will is the standard of right and truth. With this as its philosophical foundation, RAES endeavors to provide its students with a Christ-centered educational program that leads to a full commitment of their spiritual, intellectual, physical, and social resources to the service of God and their fellow man.

The prime purpose for the existence of RAES is to provide quality education in an atmosphere conducive to the total development of the student. The Christian philosophy, as taught in the classroom and which permeates all services and activities, shall preserve the distinctive personal quality of life and open to each student the development of a satisfying practical religious experience. It is the goal of RAES to prepare individuals who are maturing followers of Christ to be productive, worthy citizens and to become a positive force for the stability and uplifting of society. RAES intends to help the students form a strong character that can withstand the evils of this world by teaching them to develop a foundational relationship with God and the knowledge of biblical truth.    
    "True education means more than the pursuit of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is...It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come.”  Education, page 13
