What is Adventist Education?

Adventist Education has come a long way since 1853 when Martha Byington opened the first known church school for Sabbatarian Adventists in Buck's Bridge, New York. Today you'll find Adventist schools in nearly 150 countries. 93,000 teachers, 1.9 million students, 8,000 schools—the Adventist school system is one of the largest Christian educational systems in the world. In the United States alone there are over 1,100 schools in all 50 states.


Founded in 1872, the Adventist Education system is based on the belief that every student has value and is unique. It places importance on the systematic development of the whole person. Students learn that service is a principle of life, to be sensitive to the needs of people, and to become contributing members at home and in society.


In order to shape young people into well-rounded individuals prepared for service in this and the future life, Adventist educational facilities place special emphasis on training all aspects of one’s character: the physical, mental, social and spiritual capabilities of young men and women.


Taipei Adventist American School is accredited by the North American branch of the Seventh-day Adventist education network.
