Purpose and Organization of Key Learnings

The goal of Adventist education is to prepare young people to become Christian leaders in their communities and to prepare them for Heaven. In Education, page 21, Ellen G. White states, “True teachers aim to inspire…teachers are not satisfied with second-rate work. They are not satisfied with directing their students to a standard lower than it is possible for them to reach.”

Our Adventist educational goal has remained constant: Show children the love of Christ and teach to a higher standard! 

This document is a compilation of curriculum standards for grades K-8 named: Key Learnings.  They were written in a succinct and friendly format for educators, students and parents. The Key Learnings provide an overview of the content that students should know and be able to do in each subject area and grade. They were aligned with the North American Division curriculum guides, national standards, McRel Database (Mid-Continental Regional Educational Laboratory) and Ten Sigma (a compilation of standards for 38 states) Teachers designed this Key Learnings project for teachers across North America.

The results will assist teachers in planning lessons and curriculum for the year by:

• Providing teachers with a single easy-to-use guide for instruction

• Creating friendly curriculum outlines

• Helping teachers design their curriculum maps using National and NAD standards

• Eliminating, extending or overlapping from each grade level

• Providing ideas for material in creating cross-curricular units

• Informing parents/students on curriculum content

Teachers may also add enrichment material to help meet the needs of their students and classrooms beyond these standards. Above all our Christian content and the preparation of our students should continue to be our priority as we meet the challenges of the 21st Century. May this document contribute to that goal.

The Key Learnings for each subject are located on the left hand side of this page.
