How much better it is to get wisdom than gold!

And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver.

Proverbs 16:16

About Us

All of the weekly highlights fit into 5 main categories:

1. An emerging follower of Christ
2. A life-long learner and independent thinker
3. A physically and mentally healthy person
4. An effective communicator
5. A moral and ethical individual


Average achievement of an 8th-grader after 1-2 years at an Adventist school

Average achievement of an 8th-grader after just 3-6 years at an Adventist school

Average achievement of an 8th-grader after all 7 previous years at an Adventist school

The longer children attend Adventist schools, the higher their average achievement.

According to CognitiveGenesis, a 4-year study of 30,000 North American Adventist school students, grades 3-9 and 11, each year at an Adventist school improves students' average scholastic achievement. This research is validating what parents, teachers, and students involved in Adventist education have known for years - that, overall, Adventist school students perform better than the national average.
