Aoyama Gakuin School Motto
Jesus Christ spoke of "the salt of the earth" and "the light of the world," but this was a proclamation rather than an exhortation. Aoyama Gakuin is founded on the basis of the proclamation that your life is of inestimable value.
The Salt of the Earth: Salt adds taste, prevents spoilage and is used for purification. The human body needs a 0.7% concentration salt and we must consume 10–15 grams a day to live. This school will continue to produce individuals who strive to contribute significantly to society, resist corruption, and purify its degradation with creativity and humility.
<The Light of the World> Light provides brightness and warmth. Light leads people like a guiding light at a lighthouse, and it also disinfects and nourishes. In the same way, this school will forthrightly endeavor to create a robust and energetic society, igniting the spark of hope.
In contrast to its literal meanings, earth and world stand for "a world without God" and "the loss of human dignity." Hence, as the individuals who make up Aoyama Gakuin we are blessed by God as "Salt" and "Light," and we will strive to fulfill our purpose.
