About Our School
We bring our children to Jesus to be touched by His love, trained for service, and educated for Heaven.
The Niles 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.
- 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 Niles Adventist School operates in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
