Ithaca Seventh-day Adventist® School

About Us

Mission Statement
The Ithaca Seventh-day Adventist 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 Ithaca Seventh-day Adventist 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.
  • Value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended.
  • Cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.

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

The Ithaca Seventh-day Adventist School provides a family environment where students of all grades from Kindergarten to 8th grade learn together in the same classroom. This multigrade setting provides for unique opportunities for students to learn from each other and acquire important social skills through interacting with students of different ages. Older students learn to mentor younger students and increasingly as students move up through the grades they all get opportunities to lead.

Our teacher, Bailey Gallant, is dedicated to leading students to Jesus while giving them a strong education that trains body, mind, and soul. She loves the outdoors and believes in getting the students outside and in using the outdoors to teach.
