Restoring the image of God in every child.

I could have no greater joy, than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4

Every decision we make will be student-centered. Our job is to serve ALL of His kids. There will be young people, this school year, that will choose to live forever with a loving God in a perfect place because of what we do.

Why?
Every child deserves to know Christ: Strategically planned and supported endowments, scholarships and marketing will be pursued so that every chid who desires to have an Adventist education can.
Together as One: Our schools were created to serve the mission of the church spreading the good news of redemption. Every educator will be a co-minister with their local pastor for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Find out more about Together as One

who we are

Adventist Education has been the growing grounds for the Oregon Conference for well over 100 years. Currently we operate 32 K-12 schools that serve 2400 students within the Oregon Conference. We are very proud of our school administrators and teachers. It is amazing to see the growth in our children when they feel safe as a valued member of their school family.

Our number one goal in Adventist Education is to bring our students into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. We are so excited to see our young people make life changing decisions that truly will last for an eternity.

We thank you for remembering our next generation. They will soon sit where we sit and make the decisions that we deem important. The quality of those decisions will depend on how well we teach them. Let’s teach them well.

Our Adventist School System

The SDA school system is the second largest Christian school system in the world. Begun in the 1870’s, our emphasis is on holistic education and promotes core values in mental, physical, social, and spiritual growth through intellectually stimulating instruction and service to humanity. On any given school day:

  • Over 1.8 million students in more than 100 countries will attend classes in nearly 8000 K-12 schools, colleges, or universities.
  • In the Oregon Conference, families can choose from 32 schools that provide nearly 2400 students a quality Christian education.
