In keeping with our goals, the philosophy of the Education Ministries to uphold the banner of Christian Education. Special achievement awards and recognition are sponsored annually for all honor roll students and for all graduating students from all levels of the educational ladder. Collaboration has been built with Adventist Community Service to sponsor Adult Literacy programs.

"Our ideas of education take too narrow and too low a range. There is need of a broader scope, a higher aim. True education means more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come."   Education, p. 14, E. G. White.
