Flight Program




Being greeted by the principal every morning gives a sense of family & caring. My sons are taught by teachers who see their individual needs, further, those needs are acted upon in a loving communicative way.

As parents, we know the teachers are true partners. The curriculum is academically sound, that is a must, but the way our teachers teach and administer the curriculum that is priceless! True quality. Spiritually, the teachers see everything to be a teaching moment. Our sons love God & due in part to our teachers. They know how important a relationship with God is!


It’s exciting to see students master a new concept, perform a play or song, fluently recite a poem or scripture verse, or just read a book. Children’s minds are amazing.

My job requires long hours and lots of energy. There are frustrations. But it’s worth every bit of it. The reward of seeing a child learn and the love I receive back from the kids makes me excited to get up and go to work every single morning. I have the best job in the world.

Adventist School Teacher

Adventist education is grace before grades and Heaven before Harvard. The ultimate goal is eternal life with Christ. Teachers either help or hinder students to realize their eternal destiny. There is no middle ground. That’s why a Christian education is so important.
