This was the message of the Christian missionaries who founded the school in 1875. More than 137 years later, the love of humanity and caring for, nourishing, developing and fostering human beings who are in need prevails strongly at PIERCE today.
PIERCE students engage in private initiatives for the public good, improving the quality of life. Such projects enhance the educational ideal of excellence and assure the fullest self-development of body, mind and spirit.
As productive and concerned students, members of the student councils, both from the Gymnasium and the Lyceum, take initiatives every year. They visit orphanages and children centers, and support organizations and associations with needed material goods. They organize events to raise monetary donations to the ACG scholarship fund, which helps needy and deserving students achieve their education.
