Mission

Estabrook Christian School provides Christ-centered education for grades 1-10 where students may grow in faith while achieving academic and social skills. Biblical teaching, academic excellence, civic duty, and community service are all emphasized in a safe environment.
  
 
Philosophy
 
Built on Adventist values and principles, Estabrook School 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 insure maximum development of each individual's potential; and to embrace all that is true, good, and beautiful.

Seventh-day Adventists and Education

The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes God as the ultimate source of existence and truth. In the beginning God created in His image a perfect humanity, a perfection later marred by sin. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit; God's character and purposes  can be understood as revealed in nature, the Bible, and Jesus Christ. The distinctive characteristics of Adventist education, derived from the Bible and the inspired writings of Ellen G. White, point to the redemptive aim of true education: to restore human beings into the image of their Maker.

While God presents His infinitely loving and wise character as the ultimate norm for conduct, motives, thinking, and behavior, we have fallen short of God's ideal. Education in its broadest sense is a means of returning human beings to their original relationship with God.

An education of this kind imparts far more than academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the whole person - physically, intellectually, socially, and spiritually. Working together homes, schools, and churches cooperate with divine agencies in preparing learners for responsible citizenship.

"Adventist education is the second largest denominational educational system in the world." Data shows that there are  6,709 Adventist schools world wide, educating 1,254,179 students annually. A recent study indicates that students in the U.S. Adventist schools perform a half-grade-level better than the national average, and the longer they attend, the greater their success." http://www.nadeducation.org/e

Estabrook provides a safe and caring environment that nurtures the love for learning. Our challenging academic programs offer the students an opportunity to question, study in depth, research, and report. The teacher/student ratio of our classes (approximately 9 students per teacher) ensures that every student's strengths and challenges are well known and addressed.

Estabrook School is accredited by:
  • North American Division Commission on Accreditation
  • Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges, and Universities
  • National Council for Private School Accreditation
  • The Commission on International and Trans-Regional Accreditation
