This paper describes the shared outlooks and goals of St. Leo University, a Christian institution of higher education, and the APA Code of Ethics. Fist, the paper points out various core values ofSt. Leo's, such as excellence within and outside the University, a value shared by the APA. Next, the paper focuses on the Christian approach to the core values, especially in light of community and how they again are shared by the APA. Other aspects of the APA's code are analyzes and compared to the approach and mission of St. Leo's.
The paper concludes by stating that despite St. Leo's being proudly and uniquely Christian in its orientation, there remain some notable parallels between its values and those of the APA. It is therefore a suitable place for psychologists to receive their professional training.

From the Paper:

"Among its core values, St. Leo endorses a distinct excellence of practice that demands all its students to perform to the highest of academic standards. By paying a focus to the inherently interrelated forces of character development, theoretical development, practice refinement and ethical clarification, the university is minded toward a student body that is dedicated and accomplished. Such a standard must also be present outside of the university and in professional application, justifying the core believe that excellence in study will result in excellence of practice."
