Our Philosophy

Mount Olive College – Our Philosophy

Mount Olive College is a school that is set to harness and develop the potential of students who pass through its shores to their optimum. Lessons will adequately prepare students for WASC and IGCSE examinations. This is an ideal package for pathways to the University and demands for modern working life.

In addition to offering traditional academics subjects, we also offer subjects that would take students who so wish to alternative career routes.

In a world that is becoming increasingly complex, where success is driven not only by what you know, but by what you can do with what you know, it is more important than ever for our youth to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make useful sense of information. These are the types of skills that students learn by studying Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture and Mathethics — subjects collectively known as STEAM.

Internationally, the model used is STEM. However, the current national policy and focus on agriculture in Nigeria has necessitated its inclusion in the school academic programme.
