Team effort.

Our philosophy is to meet the needs of the whole child, Adventist EDGE teachers honor the natural cycle of learning. The natural cycle begins by connecting with the child’s experience, moving on to provide information and instruction before allowing students to practice and celebrate new learning. In keeping with the SDA philosophy of encouraging students to be “thinkers and not mere reflectors of other men’s thoughts”, EDGE teachers follow a constructivist philosophy*, encouraging students to use active techniques (experiments, real-world problem solving) to expand their knowledge and enhance their understanding of the world. Dialogue and collaboration are crucial to the process. In EDGE classrooms, children talk about what they are doing and reflect on how their understanding is changing.

Our Philosophy

The Duluth Adventist Christian 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; preparing 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 and value labor, both physical and mental
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.

The Duluth Adventist Christian School is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
