True Education


The Christian Education Department at Weimar Institute is designed to prepare students, interested in a life of service-based leadership ministry, to creatively implement a Biblical, educational paradigm in roles such as elementary school teachers, youth ministry pastors, missionaries, and educational administrators within the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

The Education Department teaches students to obtain a deeper experiential knowledge of God through the study of educational processes, Scripture, and nature. Students will learn more about the fundamental beliefs, worldview, and mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The department also provides for unparalleled opportunities to integrate with the NEWSTART® Lifestyle Program and with local, national, and international mission experiences. Combined with the General Education coursework, this program will help develop a student holistically—mind, body, and spirit.

  • Designed to develop leaders who will teach to the whole person, blending the practical and theoretical to educate learners academically, while also providing guidance for the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of life
  • Centralized focus on the life, ministry, and example of Christ the Master Teacher
  • Fully Seventh-day Adventist education based on biblical principles and Spirit of Prophecy guidelines, such as from the books Educationand Child Guidance
  • Small class sizes allowing individualized instruction and hands-on learning
  • On-site access to Weimar’s private elementary school and academy for student teaching and classroom shadowing
  • Through the Work Education program, education majors earn money toward their school bill while at the same time gaining valuable experience for their future career
  • Mission field student teaching opportunities with distance learning available so students can spend a year overseas and still complete their degree in a total of four years
  • All education professors have backgrounds including classroom experience, not just philosophical degrees
  • Weimar graduates are qualified and eligible for NAD jobs

Three Tracts

Students who complete an education degree will have thorough preparation and professional competence to work in diverse elementary school settings. Students will have taken all the necessary pre-cursors to receive certification under the North American Division for Seventh-day Adventists (NAD). Once Weimar Institute has gained full accreditation (in process), the education department will pursue certification under NAD. Students who wish to work in the Public School systems will need to complete additional requirements such as the CBEST and other tests.
