Ottawa Adventist® School

Adventist Education, An Essential.

“To increase in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man”

We follow Jesus’ example by nurturing each child’s growth as a whole person: academically, physically, spiritually and socially.

Growing spiritually

We exist to help students grow in their love for Jesus.

Growing academically

Our goal is to develop Christians with wisdom.

Growing physically

Making healthy choices is a way of honoring our bodies.

Growing socially

Loving and serving others is part of God’s plan for us.




Ottawa Adventist School is a part of the Seventh-day Adventist world-wide education system. We are committed to building a strong partnership between the home, church and school communities.

Ottawa Adventist School offers a Kindergarten program that teaches French as a subject. Our Extended French Program is ever growing. Currently, we offer Core French grades K-8, French Social Studies grades 1-4, and French Health to students in grades 1-4. 

Mission Statement

To provide a well-balanced education in a safe, caring environment, where students are encouraged to reach their highest potential; to teach Christian values and reflect them by serving the community; to encourage students to be independent thinkers and effective problem solvers.


The Ottawa Adventist School is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide 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 the blessing God intended;

  • Cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.

The Ottawa Adventist School is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.




"True education means more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come."

Ellen G. White, Education [Ed 13.1]
