“Soka” is a Japanese word that means “to create value”. Soka education traces its origin to the ideas of Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871-1944) an innovative educator. In 1930 he introduced his profound theories in his work “Education for Creative Life”, which was the fruit of 30 years of his experience in the field of education. Soka education system is based on a fundamental respect for humanity and seeks to tap the student’s latent potential. His ideas were passed on to his successor, Josei Toda (1900-1958) and after him to Dr.Daisaku Ikeda, who founded the Soka school system in order to make their ideas a reality. Following the path of our mentor, Dr.Daisaku Ikeda, the honorary founder of our college, the mission of our college is to lead humanity towards virtue and peace.
