Mission Statement

The mission of the Wilbert F. Mays Seventh-day Adventist School is the development of students who are committed to academic excellence, Christian values, and social responsibility, through Christ-centered teaching that integrates faith and learning. 

Our Philosophy 
The Wilbert F. Mays Seventh-day Adventist 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 Wilbert F. Mays Seventh-day Adventist School operates in harmony with the guidance and direction of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventist, Columbia Union,and the  Allegheny East Conference Corporation  Office of Education
