The Seventh-day Adventist Church operates more than 5,800 schools worldwide with a total enrolment of more than 1 million students.
The aim of Adventist education is to create an educational environment that makes it more likely that each student will accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Friend.
Adventist education is built on the belief that each student is unique and of immeasurable value. It values the importance of systematic development of the whole person. Students are taught to accept the concept of service as a principle of life; to be sensitive to the needs of people; and to become contributing members in their home, church, and society.
