The Lake Nelson Adventist Academy elementary school operates under the premise that all children are created in the image of God, are uniquely formed and all learn. Following the redemption principle, we nurture the spiritual, mental, physical, social, and emotional development of each child. Our qualified and certified staff roots our students with core knowledge of language arts, math, and inquiry-based science. We endeavor to work as a team through school and home to develop the character and his abilities. “To restore in man the image of his Maker, to bring him back to the perfection in which he was created, to promote the development of body, mind, and soul, that the divine purpose in his creation might be realized—this was to be the work of redemption. This is the object of education, the great object of life.” Ellen G. White, “Education”.
