The Gettysburg Adventist Christian School is open for all to attend who desire Strong Academics in a christian atmosphere.
Being a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is not a requirement but we do provide a tuition subsidy for its member students.
Although Bible is taught as a subject and spiritual guidance is integrated throughout the curriculum, non-Adventists who have attended the school and their parents have not found our teachings offensive. We teach what is from the Bible. Except for the subjects Science, Health, Bible, and a few stories within our "adapted Reading" Life series, we use typical textbook materials often used in public school.
In addition to the 4 R’s (Reading, ‘Riting, ‘Rithmatic, and Religion), all students participate in music programs including choral and hand chimes. Regular field trips enhance our curriculum. Annual outdoor school gives students ample opportunity to study nature, God’s second book. Our Bible and academic fairs have been very successful. In addition, piano, instrument lessons, and band are also offered to our students.
Gettysburg Adventist School does not specialize in, nor cater to severe cases of learning disabilities and giftedness.. However, we do consult with local school districts regarding special services, and utilize the services of the Lincoln Inter-mediate Unit 12, an Adams County specialist for remedial math, reading and speech therapy.
Historical Gettysburg benefits from the amenities of nearby cities but it, no doubt, has a small town feel. Our school is situated in a rural setting that is perfect for learning. We are within easy access (1-2 hours) of Harrisurg, Baltimore and Washington D.C.
