Educating for Eternity

At Atholton Adventist Academy, stories and experiences of each teacher, student, and parent are knit together into a mosaic which reflects God’s plan for Christian education. While the school’s mission and core values statements lay out the direction, expectation, and aspirations of our school, we are ultimately a community which strives to learn at the feet of Jesus Christ.

Like the parts of a body that make up the whole individual, Atholton succeeds only as we recognize diversity, leverage unique strengths, and move together toward the goal of “educating for eternity.” This principle is reflected in our vision for each student—to discover and nurture their diverse gifts and learning potential. Further, we achieve this through partnership with an informed community of engaged parents, administration, volunteers, staff, and God’s Spirit.

Atholton is known for our holistic approach to Christian education, and we endeavor to distinguish ourselves by the invested community which support and make up the school. I am profoundly privileged to belong and to serve this community. I invite you, if you have not yet been so fortunate, to come experience the Atholton atmosphere and consider being part of our colorful mosaic.

In His service,

Miya Kim
