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

Curriculum
The Rolla Seventh-day Adventist School uses textbooks from major publishers for Math, Social Studies, and English classes. The North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists Department of Education has developed textbooks with a Christian perspective for the subjects of Science, Bible, and Reading. Kindergarten through fourth grade are grouped into one of the school's two classrooms. Grades five through eight are grouped in the second classroom. This arrangement results in a family atmosphere where students are associating with others older and younger than themselves in both the classroom and recreation. Students are also grouped in traditional grades, and receive report cards 4 times a year.

Accreditation
The Rolla Seventh-day Adventist School in Rolla, Missouri is accredited by the Iowa-Missouri Conference of Seventh-day Adventists Board of Education and the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists Commission on Accreditation. The Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges, & Universities is a member of the National Council for Private School Accreditation.
