Honoring Different Belief Systems
Although the school is non-sectarian, TVS works to foster respect for and belief in the moral and ethical laws on which our society was built through personal example and the study of philosophy. We encourage students’ participation in any established form of religion that they and their parents may choose, and we seek to create respect for all of them. TVS believes that neither fine scholarship nor intelligent citizenship will bear good fruit unless they are sustained by a belief in spiritual and moral values.
