About Us

Mission Statement

The Wyoming Valley SDA School family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower  them to serve.

Our Philosophy

The Wyoming Valley SDA 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.

It is the purpose  of our school to:

  • present Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and encourage students to accept Him as their personal Savior and Friend;
  • help students develop a positive sense of self-worth as a child of God;
  • provide a place of learning that is physically and emotionally safe, where students are challenged to develop their full academic potential;
  • empower students to be successful in their future academic experiences, to become productive workers, and responsible citizens; and
  • help students establish wholesome relationships, demonstrating courtesy, respect, and concern for others.

Accreditation and Licensing

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

The school is approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and is accredited by the National Council of Private Schools and the Accrediting Association of Adventist Schools.

The school is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education for Non-Public Schools, and the license is reviewed annually.

Few decisions are as important – and potentially life-changing – as choosing a school for your child. Adventist education provides a quality academic experience in a caring Christian environment, with staff committed to a strong curriculum and the integrated spiritual and moral content of our school.
