The school crest depicts a book rested on top of a shield set in dark blue with white streaks radiating from it. The shield consists of a band of gold above a burning bush. All of this is then encircled by the school motto.

The book represents the Bible, the band of gold the light of God, the dark blue the stability of Christianity and the white God's purity and grace.[4]
