Our Philosophy 
The San Francisco Adventist 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 San Francisco Adventist School operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Our goal is to teach each student how to study the Bible, the foundation of all truth, and how to apply its principles to daily living, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. As a result of developing and maintaining a relationship with his/her God and Savior, each student will pursue balanced excellence in the mental, physical, social, and spiritual aspects of their lives.
