Children should not enroll in Class One before turning 10, according to the College. If they do, they could be enticed to enroll in college before turning sixteen. In our opinion, the greatest moment to enroll in secondary school is right before entering puberty, particularly if it means leaving home to live in a boarding house. The college curriculum is not designed to meet the needs of extremely young children who still rely emotionally on their parents' careful supervision. Our ideal entrance age would be 10 or close to that. No matter how talented a youngster is, he or she should have finished elementary school before enrolling at Divine Love College.
This is reflected in the design of Nigeria's educational system, and rushing children through the early stages of learning undermines some of the goals and objectives of the National Policy on Education. All students at Divine Love College are encouraged to develop leadership skills, as well as freedom of thought and responsible decision-making. If youngsters leave school when they are only 16 years old, we believe that none of these goals will be achieved very well. The prefect system is the finest approach for boarding schools to produce leaders, and as the school grows, we increasingly require experienced prefects to manage the boarding houses effectively.
We thus require senior students who are young adults rather than children. Students that start secondary school too early are frequently not picked as leaders, which prevents them from reaching their full potential.
