Like a passport opens the door to world exploration, a child’s first years of school can be the beginning of a lifelong learning adventure. Thus, school needs to be a place where kids feel welcomed, cared for, and valued. By cooperating with the divine purpose in imparting knowledge of God to children, Adventist education does more than teach. It nurtures the harmonious development of the emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, and social powers to further God’s purpose on this earth.
Caring parents want the best for their children, particularly during a time of extraordinary change that is reshaping our lives. Parents desire a great educational experience for their children because it is their passport to success in life as an adult.
“Because the NCC is committed to supporting parents who want to begin their child’s journey at one of our schools,” said President Marc Woodson, “we created the New Beginners Educational Fund.”
“Our goal is to raise $47,000 by March 30, 2021,” explained Laurie Trujillo, director of communication and development. “When we meet our goal, and with funds from the Pacific Union Conference, 172 new students in kindergarten will receive a full month of tuition for the 2021/2022 school year.”
Trujillo continued: “However, we’ve set a miracle goal to raise an additional $30,000 so our kindergarten classes can be at full capacity with 280 students.”
Albert Miller, superintendent of schools, explained: “This is not a scholarship. There is no application. It is money given to the school to cover one month of tuition for every new student who enrolls in kindergarten.”
