Mission Statement 

The George Stone School (Union College) family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.

 

Our Philosophy 

The George Stone School (Union College) is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:
value labor, physical and mental, as the
 
  • develop a personal relationship with God and fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • master the basic academic skills
  • blessing
  •  God intended
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.

The George Stone School (Union College) operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
 

Accreditation

George Stone School is accredited by the North American Division Commission on Education, the State of Nebraska, and the National Council of Private Schools Accreditation.
