About Our School


Pend Oreille Valley Adventist School, in cooperation with the home and church, provides a strong academic program with valuable enrichments in a Seventh-day Adventist context. In a safe, nurturing environment, we are committed to equipping students with knowledge, skills, and a Biblical vision that will inspire them to be a transforming influence in the world.


Those associated with Pend Oreille Valley Adventist School (POVAS) believe in the God of the Universe, we respect His authority and see His hand in human experience. We recognize that true education means more than the pursuit of a certain course of study. It means not only preparation for the life that now is, but also preparation for eternity. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, the social, and the spiritual gifts. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of service in the world to come. This basic belief is descriptive of the education as taught by POVAS.

At POVAS our staff is not only committed to training your children to realize their full potential, but also believes in helping them to exceed that potential. This same commitment to exceeding the norm is not limited to the academic arena alone, but is carried over to the social, physical and spiritual dimensions as well. Using sound and proven Biblical principles, we again challenge our students to exceed the standards set by society that they may establish a higher norm and by doing so, excel in whatever sphere they may choose to serve mankind.

The Pend Oreille Valley Seventh-day Adventist School operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
