Mission & Guiding Principles
Seisen, a Catholic International School, educates world citizens to become men and women for others and with others, in the spirit of Jesus Christ. Seisen’s mission is to provide a safe environment in order to empower each student, through shared responsibility, creativity, and human interdependence, to develop their unique talents and to become competent and compassionate players in our global society, capable of empowering others and of bringing hope and peace to our ever-changing world.
WE BELIEVE THAT...
As followers of Jesus Christ who, at the Last Supper took bread, broke it and said: “This is my Body, which will be given up for you, do this in memory of me”, we, at Seisen believe in a God who cares for and cherishes every single human being and invites us to do the same; to put love into action.
The Eucharist is the dynamic source of our identity and our energy as teachers/learners in the 21st century. It informs who we are, what we do and why we do it.
Our guiding principles are based on the tradition of learning and service handed down from St. Raphaela, the founding member of the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
We believe in educating the whole person in a warm and friendly environment in order to promote moral, physical, spiritual, intellectual, and emotional development. We want to offer ample opportunities for our students to discover God’s love in their lives, to have a personal encounter with Christ, and to grow within a strong framework of Christian values.
As Catholics we also reverence the spiritual riches of every world religion and we reach out to all God’s people wherever they are.
We believe in communion. We are all Seisen: students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni. We are all partners in the education that Seisen offers and we know that effective partnership demands open, honest and regular communication.We believe in our students. We have faith that each student can, with encouragement and guidance, be and do whatever it is that they want. They can all become global citizens and leaders, motivated and equipped to live in a fast-changing world and committed to making a difference just as St. Raphaela did in her day.
