A JOURNEY TO EXCELLENCE
It’s not easy growing up these days. Young people face challenges, pressures and temptations unimaginable just a few years ago. In a world of turmoil and constant change, parents increasingly look to Adventist education to offer their children the tools they need to survive and succeed in this life—and for eternity.
“A Journey To Excellence” is the Adventist education motto, and it’s a statistical fact our students are uniquely successful. They are academically successful and prepared. College bound. Clear thinkers who are motivated to achieve.
Established on the belief that to be Christian is to do everything with excellence, Adventist education has always placed a premium on academic quality, and the data speaks for itself:
|% of graduates who attend college: 85+||66|
|% of graduates who complete college degrees: 80+||14|
|% of applicants accepted to medical schools: 34||9|
|% of teachers certified: Nearly 100||58 (in some states)|
Percentile performance on nationally normed tests: 70%ile,
or better than 70% of all schools taking the test nationwide,
which includes public and private schools
But some things—perhaps those that are most important—just can’t be measured in test scores and college completion rates. Around the world, in more than 6,709 schools and through the inspired efforts of more than 65,679 Adventist teachers, young lives experience critical transformation.
This kind of success doesn’t happen by accident. Our teachers are a cut above-nearly all are certified and more than half hold advanced degrees-and our classes are small. We invest in technology, giving students and teachers the tools to succeed in the 21st century, and we maintain an obsessive commitment to outcomes assessment and quality improvement.
Adventist education gives students the edge required to succeed in a competitive and fast-paced world. As parents, it’s comforting to know that whatever the academic or professional challenges our children face, they’ll be ready.
