The Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of education is Christ-centered. Adventists believe that, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, God's character and purpose can be understood as revealed in the Bible, in Jesus Christ, and in nature. The distinctive characteristics of Adventist education derived from the Bible and the writings of Ellen G. White - point to the redemptive aim of true education: to restore human beings into the image of their Maker. Seventh-day Adventists believe that God is infinitely loving, wise, and powerful. He relates to human beings on a personal level, presenting His character as the ultimate norm for human conduct and his grace as the means of restoration. Adventist recognize, however, that human motives, thinking, and behavior have fallen short of God's ideal. Education in its broadset sense is a means of restoring human beings to their original relationship with God. Working together, homes, schools, and churches, cooperate with divine agencies in preparing learners for responsible citizenship in this world and in the world to come. Adventist education imparts more than academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the while person-spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially. Its time dimensions span eternity. It seeks to develop a life of faith in God and respect for the dignity of all human beings; to build character akin to that of the Creator; to nurture thinkers rather than mere reflectors of others; thoughts; to promote loving service rather than selfish ambition; to ensure maximum development of each individuals's potential; and to embrace all that is true, good, and beautiful.
