I can do all things through Christ.
The School’s Philosophy
The Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of education is Christ-centered. Adventists believe that, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, God’s character and purposes can be understood as revealed in the Bible, in Jesus Christ, and in nature. The distinctive characteristics of Adventist education- derived from the Bible and the writings of Ellen G. White – point to the redemptive aim of true education: to restore human beings into the image of their Maker.
… Adventist education imparts more than academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the whole person – spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially. Its time dimensions span eternity. It seeks to develop a faith in God and respect for the dignity of all human beings, to build character akin to that of the Creator; to nurture thinkers rather than mere reflectors of others’ thoughts to promote loving service rather than selfish ambition; to ensure maximum development of each individual’s potential and to embrace all that is true, good, and beautiful.
The mission of Cayman Academy, in cooperation with parents and other stakeholders, is to attract and educate students in a dynamic learning environment committed to the holistic development of the faculties, fostering an experiential relationship with God through Bible-based values to create confident, responsible citizens equipped with the knowledge and skills to positively impact the world with selfless service.
