General School Mission

"The aim of Seventh-day Adventist education at George E. Peters is Christ-centered instruction resulting in the experience of redemption and transformation of character. This religious dimension permeates all aspects of George E. Peters' program for spiritual, mental, physical, and social development of its students.
Spiritual development occurs through an integration of faith and learning. School personnel model christian standards and reflect that lifestyle in all interactions with parents and students. Whatever their christian faith persuasion may be, all students are encouraged to be true to its teachings and ideals.
Mental development occurs through an academic program which enables students to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to function in modern society; and also seeks to address the higher intellectual processes of critical thinking, creativity, and intellectual curiosity.
Physical development occurs through a program which builds strength, develops stamina and refines coordination. The values of healthful living and the dignity of labor are also emphasized.
Social development includes opportunities for effective interpersonal skills, appropriate use of leisure time, and unselfish service to God and man.
George E. Peters unites with the home and the church by encouraging students to develop moral values based upon Biblical principles and to practice a life of faith in God. We seek to fulfill the total development of each student, with the full support of the parent."
