We believe that true education involves connecting aspects of scientific study to a relationship with the one true God who is the designer, sustainer and the initiator of all that we are able to know. Students will be led to the God of unfathomable beauty and the complexity of creation in each and every lesson. In addition, students will be introduced to some of the world's greatest scientist who also believed in Intelligent Design. They each made significant advancements to the study and understanding of God's world and our place in it.

We start here because we recognize it's the foundation of all learning. The primary purpose of the Adventist Encounter Curriculum is for all students at every grade level to have a personal, deep, abiding relationship with God and to respond to His invitation to live out of the overflow of this relationship — to understand the truths of the Bible, to respond to Christ’s invitation to live in a lifelong vibrant relationship with Him, and be passionate about the salvation of others.
