About Us



Mission Statement

The primary objective of Christian education is to restore the image of God in man.  It seeks to provide a learning environment where students develop Christ-like characters.  This school seeks to establish an atmosphere in which students can develop mentally, physically, and spiritually.  Students are educated to accept service as a way of life, to be sensitive to the needs of people in the home and society, and to become active members in their church.  This school seeks to teach the students according to the highest academic standards.  All classes and activities are consistent with Christian principles and in harmony with the Seventh-day Adventist Church. 


Our Philosophy


A belief in the existence of God as Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, and Restorer is fundamental to the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools.  We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs.  Our understanding of God is based on the Bible which we take as our only rule of faith and practice.  We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, social, and aesthetic abilities 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 loving personal relationship with God through a devotional life of faith based on prayer and an understanding of God's word,

  • master basic academic skills in reading, science, communication, and mathematics required for entry into secondary education,

  • develop critical thinking and problem solving through deductive and logical reasoning,

  • develop a healthy sense of self-esteem as a valued child of God and an attitude of love and respect toward others,

  • appreciate and participate in physical activities and exercise and adopt patterns of healthful living,

  • value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended,

  • develop the ability to work cooperatively and supportively with others in a group, and

  • develop an appreciation for beauty, harmony, and variety in art, music, literature, and nature.

The Amesbury Seventh-day Adventist School is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
