Character Traits

Three fundamental tenets of Sikh philosophy serve as the foundation for our entire curriculum.

Students graduate from MPA with an understanding of how to live as brave, compassionate, and conscientious individuals who bring the spirit of service, reverence, and persistence to whatever they choose to accomplish and who they become.
Students of all abilities are challenged and supported to do more than they think they can at MPA. An ethic of excellence is cultivated through the academic, physical and spiritual life programmes.

School Values
