Silver Lake College is a dynamic learning community that strives to provide an environment of mutual respect and concern for each person, both inside, as well as outside of the classroom. In this Franciscan environment, Silver Lake College offers students a foundation in the liberal arts that provides avenues to search for truth, beauty, goodness, meaning in life, and promotes holistic development in order to empower students to actualize their God-given potential. Because of these beliefs, the College's expectation of value-based student conduct is based upon a growth and development model. Value development comes after making choices from a variety of options and accepting the consequences that follow. Respect for yourself and the rights of others and self-discipline are essential for the fulfillment of Silver Lake College's vision, missions, and goals for each student.
