Tyler Adventist School is a private Christian elementary school offering grades K-8.
Tyler Adventist School's mission is to be heaven bound; to instill in each child the desire to be like Jesus and to take each step with Him as they climb the ladder to academic excellence.
Our mission encompasses the following:
- To equip students to develop an understanding of and to carry out God's will in their lives.
- To encourage a partnership with the family, church, and school to provide opportunities for students to hear and respond to God's call.
- To encourage our students to follow Christ's example of growing in wisdom and stature and in favor with Gad and man in all facets of school life.
- To instill a sense of value for all labor, whether physical or mental, and to see how all labor benefits mankind.
Our Philosophy :
The staff and board of Tyler Adventist School believe that all true wisdom and knowledge come from God. The highest education is found in the Bible and a correct knowledge of Scriptures lies at the foundation of all true education. Developing a personal relationship with Christ is one of the first steps to obtaining a true education.
True education will seek to draw the learner closer to God. Through study of God's Word and developing a personal relationship with Him, students and teachers should demonstrate Christ's teachings and principals in both words and actions. When God's Word is believed, received, and carried into practice, education of the highest order results.
Students should not be trained to repeat what others have propounded. Instead, they should be taught to develop higher thinking skills and to be able to study for themselves "whether these things be true". Students should develop a loving service for mankind rather than selfish ambition. By serving others, we partake in Jesus' ministry and develop characters fit for heaven.
Students should strive to obtain excellence in all aspects of life: spritual, physical, mental, and social. This means developing a personal relationship with God, following the laws of health, developing good study habits, filling the mind with "whatsover things are true, holy, pure, and just", and learning to interact with others in a positive, uplifting manner regardless of social status, race, or ethnicity.
While our goal is to provide a rich, academic experience, it is important that each child develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. We strive to give the students opportunities to develop this relationship through daily worships, weeks of prayer, Bible class, witnessing and outreach projects, and active participation in church.
Realizing that none of the above can be accomplished without total surrender to Christ's will, and this surrender does not come naturally, it is our desire that by seeing this surrender modeled in the church, home, and school, our students will want to daily surrender their lives to Christ as well.
Tyler Adventist School operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
