Mission Statement

The Living Springs Academy family exists to show children Jesus,
                                                            nurture love for Him and others,
                                                            fortify mind and body, and
                                                            empower them to serve.


Philosophy

We believe --
Deut 4:9          . . . Do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live.
                             Teach them to your children and to their children after them.

Deut 11:19           Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home,
                             when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Deut 32:2             Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass,
                             like abundant rain on tender plants.

Prov 22:6             Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Isaiah 54:13         All your children shall be taught by the LORD, and great shall be the peace of your children.
Colossians 3:21   Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
2 Tim 3:16-17     All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction,
                            and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent,
                            equipped for every good work.


We believe in --
the harmonious development of the physical, the mental and 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.
-- E. G. WHITE, Education pg. 17
 
We believe that --
Adventist education 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 ensure maximum development of each individual’s potential; and to embrace all that is true, good, and beautiful.
 
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 in this world and in the world to come.

We consider it not only our highest duty, but our greatest privilege to introduce our children to the Lord Jesus Christ, and to show them why He is ultimately worthy of their trust.

Living Springs Academy admits students of any color, race, or ethnic origin, to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students.  In its administration of educational policies, it does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or ethnic origin.  The school is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
