John Nevins Andrews School is a K-8 Seventh-day Adventist Christian School whose mission is to provide a dynamic, faith-based education in a safe environment. We are committed to expanding the imagination, empowering academic excellence, cultivating a Christ-like character, encouraging service to the community and promoting respect for diversity.
The school recognizes the uniqueness and individuality of each child. Our goal is to help each student find his/her pathway to success and reach his/her full potential. Accordingly, we subscribe to the Seventh-day Adventist church’s educational philosophy, which is based on a developmental approach to learning. It entails the assessment and class placement of each child through formal testing and observation as well as letters of recommendation, where available. Each child’s developmental (social, emotional, physical, and academic) and chronological ages are considered.

Our philosophy of education is founded in the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s understanding of the nature of God and humankind as taught in the Bible. We believe God is a personal being who, in love, created an orderly world. Sin and evil entered the world through the distrust and disobedience shown by Adam and Eve. Because of this, Adam and Eve lost their innocence and sin became a reality in the lives of human beings.
We believe God created human beings in His likeness with the freedom and power to think, choose, and act upon their choices. One of our primary objectives is to provide for a balanced development of our students’ physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual potential.
We believe children and adults can be helped to develop a personal friendship with Jesus Christ who empowers them to overcome sin and evil. Therefore, the heart of our philosophy of Christian education is this: “There is hope for today and for the future and that hope rests in the restoration of God’s image in His children.”
