Adventist Students Score High
in Survey’s Second Year


When asked why they send their child to an Adventist school, one parent responded, "I am going to do every thing in my power to help my children choose heaven; after that, it is their choice. I cannot afford to risk otherwise."

Standardized tests demonstrate value of church-run schools



Seventh-day Adventist church-run schools -- no matter how small and no matter how brief a student’s tenure – produce children who test above their grade level and their potential on standardized tests, the second year of a three-year study finds.


 "There's a pervasive Adventist advantage in educational performance," said Jerome Thayer, a retired statistician and professor from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan. "The [longer] a child is in Adventist schools, the higher their achivement level."


While it has been widely acknowledged in church circles that Adventist education helps produce Adventist youngsters who stay connected to the movement, "parents have lost confidence in the academic part," Kido said. The study's data refutes that, Thayer added: "this affirms the teachers and all the blood and sweat" invested in Adventist education, he said.


Kido added, "Do we want our kids in Adventist schools and do we want them there year after year? Yes, if we want these kinds of academic achievement. You want to send them from the very beginning. We talk about a hidden curriculum – everything that is not in the books, but that happens at the school."
