Philosophy of Education

Bangkok Advent School seeks to provides a well -rounded Christian education that focuses on academic excellence and the development of strong moral values. The educational philosophy is firmly grounded in the Seventh-day Adventist  system of education , the largest Protestant school system in the world.

The philosophy is summarized as follows:

“True education means more than the pursual of certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental and the spiritual powers. It prepares the students for the joy of service in this world, and for the higher joy wider service in the world to come.” E.G White, Education, p. 13

The Bible reveals God as the source of all knowledge and wisdom and the the Creator of all life;therefore it is the most important textbook used in the classroom. Through its teachings, students learn that God loves each of them individually and plans only for their best interest.

Viewing each child as a unique creation of God, teachers recognize that students at all levels schooling possess individuality, and encourage the development and use of the specific talents of children to become individuals of principle, qualified for any position in life. Through positive reinforcement, the faculty seeks to assists each student in achieving his/her academic and other potentials.
