Adventist Education Has an Impressive Story

Founded in 1964, South Bay Christian School was founded by the Seventh-day Adventist community to be a private Christian school accepting students from all denominations. Students in U.S. Seventh-day Adventist schools achieve at half a grade higher than the national average, and beyond their own predicted ability, as shown by CognitiveGenius, in a recent study.

Children in Adventist schools make better moral decisions, as shown by ValueGenius, an earlier study.

Worldwide there are 6,700+ Adventist schools, 65,000+ teachers, and over 1.2 million students. Adventist education is the second largest denominational educational system in the world.
