Welcome to your Christian varsity of excellence

Helderberg College of Higher Education (HCHE) is part of a global education system of the Seventh-day Adventists (SDA) who operate over 115 Colleges or Universities around the world. Established over 126 years ago as the first SDA College outside North America with a distinct mission and philosophy of education.

“Adventist Education imparts more than academic knowledge. It seeks to develop the whole person-head, heart and the hand. It seeks to develop a purpose and  a philosophy of life, faith in God, respect for dignity for all human beings, build character akin to that of their Creator, and to promote loving service rather than
selfish ambition”. (SDA Educational Philosophy, p.1).

The programs, curricula, extra-curricular activities and the ethos of the  institution are underpinned by Adventist education philosophy. As a College community, we endeavour to provide a conducive learning environment and protect our students from undesirable and unwholesome things of the world.
