Milo Academy Social Life

Milo Adventist Academy is committed to providing an atmosphere and learning experiences that will enable each student to develop and improve social skills such as teamwork, leadership, consideration of others, conflict resolution, and good manners.

One of the goals of our school is to help students develop wholesome social relationships. The friendships formed here can do much to make the school year happy and successful. Students are encouraged to form many friendships rather than one serious, steady relationship.

Goals: Students will learn to . . .

  1. regard others as worthy of respect.
  2. manifest Christian attitudes of propriety and respect in all social relationships.
  3. consider other points of view.
  4. exercise self-control and self-discipline.
  5. respect the property of others.
  6. conduct social functions which adhere to biblical principles.
