Our Mission Statement 

Buena Vista Seventh-day Adventist School  exists to lead each of its children 
into a close and saving relationship with Jesus Christ. 
Through His grace we seek to prepare them mentally, physically, 
and spiritually for a place in His service. 
We treasure each child who enters here as a gift of God.

Our Philosophy

Buena Vista Seventh-day Adventist Elementary 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 John 2:52.
  • master the basic academic skills.
  • value labor, physical and mental as the blessing God intended.
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity.

Buena Vista Seventh-day Adventist Elementary School operates in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
