The Academy's model centres around its core values that inform all teaching, learning and experiential learning programs. The four values that the Academy aspires to incorporate in all its endeavours are:
Faith, Knowledge, Action & Community
Faith represents the underlying values of ethical leadership that we at YaleSA aim to develop within our young leaders. Faith, as a means to encourage global ethics, particularly focuses on the development of key traits such as integrity, selflessness, comfort of identity, sincerity, respect for others, loyalty, objectivity, and courage and resilience in the face adversity.
Action directly relates to knowledge, as the Academy pays particular attention to "actionable knowledge". One's knowledge is of no use if it is neither actionable, nor benefits humanity.
