What We Do…
The education department promotes Adventist education in the K-12 school system, and works to develop the talents of its teachers and students. We provide consultation in program development, personnel, school accreditation, and teacher certification.
Developing leaders today who will walk with Jesus through eternity.
Because we believe that true wisdom comes from God, we encourage schools to provide students opportunities to accept Jesus as their Savior, allow the Holy Spirit to transform their lives, and live a life of service. This is done by being involved in daily school worship, Bible labs, weeks of prayer, and local Church outreach programs.
Wisconsin Board of Education
A strategic planning and visioning committee for the educational programs of the conference. The members are elected by the Executive Committee and include teacher, pastor, lay, and WA alumni. They meet six or seven times per year.

This brief video presentation introduces Education-Connect, one of the four Wisconsin Conference initiatives. The focus of Education-Connect is to bring together in mutual support our homes, churches and schools to prepare students to reflect Jesus clearly, experience the joy of service, and be prepared for the soon coming of Jesus.
