About Adventist Education

about us

Adventist Education is an outstanding system of schools that began in 1872 and has grown to be the second largest Christian educational system worldwide.

Currently there are over 1000 elementary and secondary schools and 15 colleges and universities serving 65,000 students in the North American Division alone. The Pennsylvania Conference education department works within this system and operates and supports twelve schools in our state.

Adventist education imparts more than excellent academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the whole person—spiritual, physical, intellectual,and social-emotional—a process that spans a lifetime. Working together, homes, schools, and churches cooperate with divine agencies to prepare learners to be good citizens in this world and for eternity. 

Our goal is to help schools provide students every opportunity for their spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth, equipping them not only for their future in this world, but also for eternity. Our schools will enable young people to grow in their relationship with Jesus and lead them to use their gifts and abilities to serve others.

OUR MISSION

To enable learners to develop a life of faith in God, and to use their knowledge, skills, and understandings to serve God and humanity

OUR VISION

For every learner to excel in faith, learning, and service, blending biblical truth and academic achievement to honor God and bless others.

CORE VALUES

Our Core Values influence all we do in education.

Learn what these five values are, how we live them out in our schools, and how they impact our students. Our goal is to help schools provide students every opportunity for their spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth, equipping them not only for their future in this world, but also for eternity.

Communication

Seventh-day Adventist schools have a family atmosphere that is similar to what students encounter in the real world outside the classroom. “The range of social relationships students build in a multilevel classroom more closely reflects the social situations individuals encounter in workplaces, communities, and families.” edu.gov.mb.cas
