Philosophy of education — The Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of education is Christ centered. The distinctive characteristics of Adventist education derived from the Bible and the writings of Ellen G White point to the redemptive aim of true education: to restore human beings into the image of their Maker. Adventist education imparts more than academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the whole person spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially.
Adventist education prepares people for useful and joy-filled lives, fostering friendships with God, whole-person development, Bible-based values, and selfless service in accordance with the Seventh-day Adventist mission to the world.
The Christian teachers in the schools provide students the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior and commit to a life of Christian values and service.
