High Performing Academic Scholars

A study was commissioned between 2006-2009 to study academic performance in Adventist schools. The results from CognitiveGenesis were fascinating...and surprising!

The project gathered massive amounts of data about the academic achievement and abilities of 51,706 students in more than 800 Adventist elementary schools and academies in the United States. The students were in grades 3 to 9, and also in grade 11.

The overall finding:


In all grades, in schools of all sizes, students in Adventist schools outperformed the national average in all subjects (after controlling for ability).






What Your Child Will Learn

Education standards define what learners should know (content) and be able to do (skills). These standards reflect an integration of the Adventist worldview along with national and state standards for K-12 curricula.

The Adventist worldview accepts the Bible as the standard by which everything else is measured.

Four key concepts emerge from a biblical worldview that can be used as a lens for curriculum development, as well as informing the essential questions and big ideas of any content area:

  • Creation (What is God’s intention?)
  • Fall (How has God’s purpose been distorted?)
  • Redemption (How does God help us to respond?)
  • Re-creation (How can we be restored in the image of God?)

Philosophy of Adventist Education

The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes God as the ultimate source of existence, truth, and power. In the beginning God created in His image a perfect humanity, a perfection later marred by sin. Education in its broadest sense is a means of returning human beings to their original relationship with God.

The distinctive characteristics of this Adventist worldview, built around creation, the fall, redemption, and re-creation, are derived from the Bible and the inspired writings of Ellen G. White.

The aim of true education is to restore human beings into the image of God as revealed by the life of Jesus Christ.

Only through the guidance of the Holy Spirit can this be accomplished. An education of this kind imparts far more than 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.
