Mission and Ethos

Our Mission and Ethos

Formed and operated by the TCI Education Foundation, a charitable organisation incorporated in 1993, the British West Indies Collegiate is a private international secondary school whose founding ethos is the provision of education of the highest possible quality for the children of Turks and Caicos as well as those who come to reside in the Islands.

The Collegiate’s motto is ‘Crescat Scientia’, which means Let Knowledge Grow.

At the British West Indies Collegiate, we strive to provide a learning environment in which students are encouraged to —

  • Become active, dependable, and productive citizens, with a hunger for lifelong learning, and aspirations towards altruistic leadership
  • Be caring and responsible individuals, appreciating their own culture while remaining respectful of the perspectives, values and traditions of others
  • Feel free to question and examine without fear of belittlement or rebuke
  • Thrive from the promotion, the effective development, and the application of sound communication skills
  • Grow in confidence, mutual respect, well-being, honesty, and personal integrity within a positive and harmonious atmosphere, and in safe surroundings
  • Develop creative expression, curiosity, critical thinking and independent learning through the provision of a stimulating setting
  • Develop a sense of belonging and identity, so as to promote fellowship, co-operation and a sense of loyalty
  • Show respect for the environment and the world in which we live, beginning at school and at home.
