The philosophy of Jephthah Comprehensive Secondary School is succinctly hinged upon 2 Timothy3:16-17”All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”. We believe that the Bible is the only inspired and infallible authoritative Word of God who is the author of all truth. To this end, we provide an atmosphere in the school that promotes spiritual, mental, social, and physical
development as indicated in Luke 2:52 (And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man). We believe that the total education of each student necessitates active collaboration with parents to whom God has given the primary responsibility of educating the child. We train our students to develop in four (4 Pillars) core areas
Vision Statement: Our vision is to “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it”. Proverbs 22:6 KJV
Mission Statement: Our mission is to provide comprehensive Christian education in a supportive environment that promotes excellence in learning, self-
discipline, and motivation, in ensuring that students become disciples of Jesus Christ and advance the global community.
