Holistic Education

In our commitment to holistic education, we aim to take advantage of every God-given opportunity to provide growth and development in our students. Nothing we do is extracurricular. The method of learning takes advantage of every possible teachable moment in as rich a variety of settings as possible. Holistic education means educating the whole person – academically, socially, physically, spiritually -- preparing the student in all dimensions for life and work.


Founded upon its three main pillars of holistic education - True Knowledge, Faith in Christ, and Godly Character - the mission of the Yayasan Pendidikan Pelita Harapan (YPPH / Pelita Harapan Education Foundation) is to become an institution focused on Christ-centered, holistic educational excellence in Indonesia and beyond.

Our philosophy of education is built on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through a relationship with God, the natural world, and local and global community. Such an education provides the basis for continuing intellectual development, expanding curiosity and creativity, professional competence, community contribution, and spiritual maturity. This integral approach enables our graduates to become productive and transformative agents in all areas of their lives.

The YPPH, believes that holistic education is essential to the transformation and flourishing of Indonesia, and to our nation’s future leadership in the global community. We are committed to answering this calling by preparing future leaders who truly reflect our motto: True Knowledge, Faith in Christ, Godly Character. We consider it a tremendous privilege and blessing to be able to participate in the work of Christ. Through and by God’s grace, we devote ourselves to this endeavor.
