Olney Adventist Preparatory School
"We go above and beyond in treating children as individuals
academically, spiritually, socially, and physically."
Olney Adventist Preparatory School is a Kindergarten through Grade Eight Christian school located in Olney, Maryland. 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 life, to develop and improve their abilities, and to awaken the spirit of service by following Christ’s example. It is our vision to holistically educate our children in mind, body, and spirit.
Our rigorous academic program is Christ-centered and biblically-based. An enriched curriculum relevant to life skills, complimented by small class sizes and individualized instruction, 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.
It is our priority to assist students in developing a personal relationship with Christ and values grounded in Scripture. 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 to excellence and their full personal capacity. Our school motto, “Above and Beyond,” is used to address students, staff, and families that have exceeded our expectations in application, extension, and creativity in any task or action.
"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 students for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come."
- Ellen G. White
