Superintendent of Schools

Northeastern Conference Education System

The Northeastern Conference Education Department operates five schools in the New England states and eleven in the state of New York. Among these are two senior academies and a junior academy. 

The aim of Adventist education is to help students encounter Christ and through the process enable them to experience His transformational power. Ultimately, we desire the reflection of Christ’s image in their lives. An education of this kind imparts far more than academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the whole person—spiritual, physical, intellectual, and social-emotional—a process that spans a lifetime.

Working together, the homes, schools, and churches of the Northeastern Conference cooperate with divine agencies to prepare learners to be good citizens in this world and for eternity.

Our aim is to Nurture, Educate and Challenge God’s children.
