Thank you for stopping by our website. We are anxious to introduce you to our students, staff, and program. If you are looking for a great, small K-12 school that is excited about learning and even more excited about being part of Christian ministry in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia, Highland Adventist School may be the school for you. Please read on to find out more about who we are and what we are doing.
We seek to promote in our students and our community ideals of physical, mental, and spiritual health, through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our school theme is Christ Centered. . .Student Focused and we believe it shows in everything we do. Highland 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
Highland 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.
