Duluth Adventist Christian School

Duluth Adventist Christian 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 and value labor, both physical and mental.

  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.

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

The Adventist Edge

Our philosophy is to meet the needs of the whole child.

The Adventist EDGE is the Southern Union’s initiative for the comprehensive improvement of Adventist education, from Early Childhood through grade 12 grade and sets the course for excellence in all areas.

Adventist EDGE teachers honor the natural cycle of learning. The natural cycle begins by connecting with the child’s experience, moving on to provide information and instruction before allowing students to practice and celebrate new learning. Our SDA philosophy encourages students to be “thinkers and not mere reflectors of other men’s thoughts.”

EDGE teachers follow a constructivist philosophy, encouraging students to use active techniques (experiments, real-world problem solving) to expand their knowledge and enhance their understanding of the world. Dialogue and collaboration are crucial to the process.

In EDGE classrooms, children talk about what they are doing and reflect on how their understanding is changing.

The Congnitive Genesis Study is an assessment of Adventist academic achievement at the elementary and high school level by the Center for Research on Adventist Education at La Sierra University (CRAE),

The CognitiveGenesis study was born out of the desire to create an empirical data bank that could answer the following questions:

  • How well are students doing academically?

  • Are there unique, identifiable qualities that are related to Seventh-day Adventist academics and, if so, what are they?

  • How do Seventh-day Adventist students compare in academic performance to their counterparts in public and private schools?

Cognitive Genesis

Seventh-day Adventist educators have long maintained that their students’ achievement test scores (Iowa Test of Basic Skills scores), pass rates, and college matriculation percentages consistently outpace most public school and even other private school systems.

The Annual Council of American Private Education Report indicates performance of private education students on nationwide standardized tests routinely outpaces those of public school students. Are these impressive facts or just well-intentioned propaganda?
