The Adventist Advantage

Adventists know education.  Your child will benefit from the insights that we have in excellence and  resilience in education.  We've been teaching children in Clearlake since 1947. And we're one of the 800+ schools of the Seventh-day Adventist educational system that has been operating since 1872. Christian education is a vital part of our mission from preschools to universities.

Adventists excel at education.  You can be confident your child will receive the foundation needed to achieve his or her dreams. 85% of students from Adventist schools go on to college (compared to 66% of public school students).  And more than 80% complete their college degrees (compared to 14% from public schools). In addition, a three-year research project with 51,000+ students (kindergarten through high school) documented multiple advantages of Adventist education.

  • Students in Adventist schools outperform. In comparisons with students in both public and private schools, researchers documented that Adventist students outperformed the national average, in all grades, in schools of all sizes, and in all subjects. Some schools were one-room classrooms and many were single-grade classrooms.
  • Students in Adventist schools overachieve. Additionally, researchers compared student performance on standardized tests with what would be predicted based on their Cognitive Abilities Test scores, and found they performed above what would be predicted.
  • Students in Adventist schools gain even more with time. One of the most dramatic findings is that students who transferred to Adventist schools saw a marked improvement in test scores. Furthermore, the longer students are in Adventist schools, the better their achievements and abilities.

Adventists educate the whole child. A multi focus on the spiritual development, mental information and understanding, physical maturation, and social interaction are emphasized through music, art, daily physical education, experiential learning projects and community service to nurture our students spiritually, academically, physically and socially.

Adventists education for eternity. As Protestant Christians, we believe a personal relationship with God is the key to a happy, healthy life here on earth and for eternity.  While this is harder to quantify, it is the focus of everything we do, the reason we exist.
