Our vision is to create a worldwide association of lay-operated Seventh-day Adventist schools preparing young people to proclaim the three angels’ messages.The E. A. Sutherland Education Association ensures excellence in its member schools through a continuous process of self-evaluation, reflection, and improvement. Schools are challenged to implement innovative change and continual improvement while faithfully adhering to a distinct Seventh-day Adventist educational philosophy.
To facilitate this process, EASEA offers school accreditation and teacher certification services that are in harmony with the mission and vision of its member schools.

- Do you have a kindergarten program?
No. Based on EGW’s writings we believe that young children should be educated at home until they are mature enough.
