The Value of Adventist Education


Student Learner Outcomes

Orangewood Academy is committed to providing an education that addresses the four essential facets of true education.  Our teaching is supported by four educational tenets--  

SPIRITUALITY:  Each student will identify and demonstrate components of a Christian lifestyle including moral and ethical behavior based on grace oriented biblical principles.  

SCHOLARSHIP:   Each student will acquire skills in studying, critical thinking, practical living, goal-setting, and personal assessment.  

SPORTSMANSHIP:   Each student will demonstrate fitness, self-control, teamwork, and honesty by modeling respect, courtesy, and consideration. 

SERVICE:  Each student will recognize membership in the world community and the inherent ability to positively impact society and the environment.

Orangewood Academy admits students of any race, color, or national origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.  Orangewood Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship, local programs, and other school-administered programs.



At Orangewood Academy, we strive to make our education Christ-centered and based on Biblical principles gleaned from a Christian worldview and an Adventist heritage. Our education is founded on these four goals: spirituality, scholarship, sportsmanship, and service. We desire to educate our students for a higher purpose and to ultimately produce citizens who will positively impact their family, community, society, and the world. Our teachers endeavor to instill in each student the qualities of respect, responsibility, courtesy, and graced in all situations and towards all people. We believe that it is our primary purpose to guide every student into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as we awaken in them a love for learning and the joy of discovery.
