Quality Education from a Christian Perspective 

Philosophy, Mission, and Goals
South Suburban Seventh-day Adventist Christian School is a Nursery through 8th grade school supported by the Lake Region Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. This school provides an educational program that operates within a Christian philosophy and guidelines of the Seventh-day Adventist church. South Suburban Seventh-day Adventist Christian School welcomes all who share a belief in our educational philosophy and objectives (regardless of race, sex, religion, or ethnic origin).

Educational Philosophy
Our philosophy of education is baed on the belief that all true wisdom and knowledge comes from God.  It is our privilege to cooperate with divine agencies and the home to help students mold their characters into a likeness of God; to rightly understand the esteem in which God holds them, so that they develop a respectful love for God, themselves, and others.  It is our desire to nurture that love so that students strive for excellence in all aspects of their lives.  

Mission statement
South Suburban SDA Christian School is dedicated to providing a superior standard of Christian education in a safe, supportive learning environment that: promotes the harmonious development of hte spiritual, mental, physical, and social life of students; promotes academic excellence; and encourages students to achieve their personal best in preparation for service to God and humanity.  

Goals of the Educational Program
The school’s goals are designed to accomplish the school’s mission and achieve its vision through religious, intellectual, emotional, aesthetic, physical, and social development. The South Suburban Seventh-day Adventist Christian School is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:

  • develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • master the basic academic skills
  • value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended

The South Suburban Seventh-day Adventist Christian School is also operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
