About Us

Why Tracy Adventist School? 

Our mission is to provide mental, physical, spiritual, and social education to our students that will last throughout eternity.


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

The North American Division operates 1812 schools, preschool - full universities. 


History of the School

The Tracy Adventist School was established in 1953 when our two-room school was built on the property between 20th and 21st Streets.  At that time, our school was also used for church services until the Tracy Adventist Church was completed in 1957.  During the first years of school, a local physician, Dr. Erwin Henning, served as the school’s first board chairman.  In 1970 a new gymnasium with full basketball court, kitchen, and restroom facilities was added.  Since its origin, other additions have been made to the school grounds, including a third classroom, computer lab, and large playground area.  Today our school continues its commitment to education of the highest standards thanks to the dedication of many parents, teachers, and volunteers who have committed themselves to our mission.


Our school provides education for children, based on Biblical principles. In doing so, the school seeks to:

  1. Promote spiritual and moral development.
  2. Maintain a high standard of scholastic excellence.
  3. Teach basic principles of health and physical well-being.
  4. Develop the ability to think clearly and logically.
  5. Instruct in practical skills and the dignity of labor.
  6. Develop an appreciation for the fine arts.
  7. Encourage creativity.
  8. Teach the responsibility and privileges of good citizenship.
  9. Instill respect for the worth of the individual.
  10. Prepare students for service to God, church, country, community, and fellow man.


Cognitive Excellence

The CognitiveGenesis study, a project undertaken by La Sierra University and the North American Division Office of Education, set out to answer these questions:

  1. How well are students doing academically in the Adventist school system?
  2. How does academic performance in Adventist schools compare to academic performance in public schools and other private schools?
  3. What student, home and school factors are associated with higher academic achievement?
  4. What areas could be improved to provide the best possible education?
