Adventist Education

Macksville Adventist School is owned and operated by Seventh-day Adventist Schools (NNSW) Ltd; a member of Adventist Schools Australia. 

Adventist Schools Australia operates forty-eight schools and caters for more than 11,600 students, which provides a network of resources to give each child an education of the highest quality in an ideal Christian learning environment. Adventist education is built on the belief that each student is unique, and of immeasurable worth. It values the importance of systematic development of the whole person. Students are taught to accept the concept of service as a principle of life; to be sensitive to the needs of people; and to become contributing members in their community. 

At the heart of Adventist education is a belief that children achieve true growth when their mental, physical and spiritual needs are met.  Macksville Adventist School upholds these beliefs and, with enviable teacher-to-student ratios, provides a nurturing and caring learning environment where Christian values are upheld.

As a part of the Adventist independent schools system, Macksville Adventist School welcomes students from all faiths and cultural backgrounds.  We do not impose a mandatory church attendance on students who attend our school; however students and their families are all most welcome to join us at any time. Whilst we offer after hours and weekend bible tuition, this is also a choice for each individual student.

Our teaching and faith values the family and promotes a respect for others and ourselves. Whether your child is an Adventist or follows another faith, we expect these values and principles to be upheld within our schools, and request a high standard of conduct both within and outside the school.

As a Christian organisation we do devote time to worship and learning about God and the Bible. Your child will receive Bible classes, hear regular bible stories and will be involved in a weekly chapel service.  Worship is a core component of education at Macksville Adventist School, and all students are encouraged to have a relationship with Jesus.  Through our worship and chapel programs, we aim to help the families at our schools raise responsible, mature and well-rounded children with a balance to their lives.
