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.

Increased Test Scores

Students in all grades, in Adventist schools of all sizes, outperformed the national average in all subjects.

  • Students in Adventist schools had higher-than-expected academic achievement based on an assessment of individual ability.
  • Students who transferred to Adventist schools saw a significant improvement in their test scores.

Outstanding Student Work

Students are provided with the necessary tools to thrive in the world as God’s ambassadors in the whatever career or vocation He leads them. Students learn through:

  • Participation in high quality materials
  • The use of current technology
  • Educational experience that is individualized for each student’s needs

Life-Building Experiences

Education is more than just academics. Students who attend Adventist schools learn the extra “unmeasurables” that often give young people an edge in life:

  • Training in leadership skills and character development
  • Interaction with curriculum through specialists and field trips
  • Working with students of all ages and from other schools

Community Service

Students learn to be servant leaders like Jesus by participating in service activities with their school. These activities include:

  • Leading out in church services
  • Participating in Conference or church Compassion events
  • Working in cooperation with other civic groups to meet real needs


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.”
