Mission Statement

The Peninsula Adventist Elementary School family exists to educate spiritually, mentally, and physically in a Biblical worldview about the hope of salvation in Christ and the joy of useful service.

Our Philosophy

The Peninsula Adventist Elementary 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. This prepares 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
  • Value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended
  • Work toward a healthy, positive self image
  • Cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended
  • Engage in service to others

The Peninsula Adventist Elementary School is operated under the direction of the Washington Conference in harmony with the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
