Educators Delivering GREAT Education!

SDA Christian principles are integrated with learning to anchor students in a relationship with God and prepare them for a joyful life of service.

Measurable goals are established and results are assessed to assure that student and teacher performance is cultivated to the highest possible level and teaching strategies are continually refined.

Environment that is safe and nurturing
With the teacher as a servant-leader/coach, students master relevant and meaningful concepts. Individual learning needs are met through student-centered teaching strategies in a collaborative atmosphere.

Aligned with Adventist and national standards
Journey to Excellence is the North American Division plan to improve the educational system, and focus on the essential core elements that identify the high expectations of what students should know and be able to do.

Team effort
Students have the best advantage when parents, teachers, college and university educators, administrators, board members, pastors and church members are committed to developing, promoting, and maintaining a successful program.
