About Us

Mission Statement 
The Detroit Lakes Adventist Christian School family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.

"Finding Happiness in Learning, Serving, Loving, Knowing, & Obeying God!"

Our Philosophy 
The Detroit Lakes Adventist Christian 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 well as developing a healthy lifestyle
  • develope skills for service
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, moral purity, and a sense of wonder as the blessings God intended.

The Detroit Lakes Adventist Christian School is operated with guidance and direction from the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Few decisions are as important -- and potentially life-changing as choosing a school for your child.  In this video you will learn about some exciting research that shows Seventh-day Adventist education to be among the best in the country.  It addresses many of the common misconceptions that are held about academic achievement in a small school setting.  Adventist Christian education provides a quality academic experience in a caring Christian environment.  For additional information about the research, its findings, and how it can benefit your child, visit the website www.cognitivegenesis.org.
