What We Value
The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes God as the ultimate source of existence and truth. Through the Bible, He has revealed His will to the world, and through his Church on earth, He seeks the lost for His kingdom.
The basic tenets of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as the inspired writings of Ellen White, are directed toward God’s plan for humanity. The Church conducts its own system of education to engender belief in these tenets, within the context of one’s personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and to foster a desire to share that relationship with others.
Made in God’s image, every human being is endowed with attributes akin to those of the Creator. Therefore, Adventist education seeks to nurture thinkers rather than mere reflectors of others’ thoughts, loving service rather than selfish ambition, maximum development of one’s potential, and an appreciation for all that is beautiful, true, and good.
An education of this kind imparts far more than academic knowledge. It is a balanced development of the whole person. In Adventist education, homes, schools and churches cooperate together in preparing learners for citizenship here on this earth and in the New Earth to come.
