about Olney Prep
Olney Adventist Preparatory School is purposed to holistically educate our children in mind, body and spirit. Our philosophy is built on the belief that God has created each student with unique abilities and gifts, and through His grace and strength, all children can achieve. It is our purpose to help children discover God’s will for their lives, to develop and improve their abilities, and to awaken the spirit of service by following Christ’s example. With a love for Christ and their fellow man, teachers help students develop their talents to make a positive impact on the surrounding community through service and leadership opportunities. As a unified community of learners with diverse religions, cultures, ethnicities, and learning styles, teachers and students respect and value our similarities and differences.
Our rigorous academic program is based on an enriched curriculum relevant to life skills, complemented by small class sizes and individualized instruction, and is the teaching standard to which we hold ourselves accountable. Subjects are taught in a unique and intellectually challenging way that prepares and encourages our students to learn, think, speak, and act with confidence and skill.
Dignity, grace, respect, integrity, service, responsible citizenship, personal discipline, and leadership are developed through instruction and modeled in the behavior of the school community. Students are challenged and inspired to achieve their full potential. Our school motto, “Above and Beyond,” is used to address students, staff, and families who have exceeded our expectations in application, extension, and creativity in any task or action.
