About Sheng-te

 

FOREWORD

Christian education was the origin and mainstream of Western education.  It also influenced the beginning of Chinese modern education.  The purpose of Christian higher education is to cultivate spiritual life, character and academic growth, as well as shape a person's temperament - a "whole-person education."  The purpose of life is to serve, and the foundations of service are character, knowledge, and skill.  Without these foundations it would be hard to get an ideal job and carry out one's dream.  Thus, Sheng-te Christian College places special emphasis on whole-person education.  By stressing character development, virtue and intelligence, we cultivate students with the ability and desire to serve society and glorify God.

In the autumn of 1956, American missionaries Dr. John T. and Rachel Chappell, used their life savings and pension to found Sheng-te Christian College.  This independent, non-denominational college is registered by the Ministry of the Interior of the Central Government of Taiwan.  It was accredited by International Christian Education in 1993.  Professionally, it is affiliated with the International Council of Higher Education, and The Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, highly respected international education organizations.
