Education of youth has been an important part of the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The church operates the second largest parochial school system in the world. During the early years of the church it was determined that educating youth in church schools was necessary in order to not only education students but to do it in a spiritual setting. The educational philosophy was predicated on a holistic approach of educating the whole person, mind, body, and spirit. To this end schools were established, offering a curriculum of classical education, religion courses, as well as opportunities for physical and practical development.
The Mt Pleasant
Seventh-day Adventist Church saw the need for a school, built a building, and
opened its doors to kindergarten through eighth grade students. The school is
small and is able to provide an excellent teacher student ratio. The management of the school was placed in
the hands of the school board which is appointed by the church. The board is
composed of a chairperson, pastor of the church, teacher of the school,
treasurer, Home and School leader, a church elder, and one member from the local congregation.
