As for Me and My House 

But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. (Joshua 24:15)

Serving God is a choice. We can choose to adopt the standards of the world but once we have experienced God’s faithfulness serving Him is simply compelling. 

Educators in the Georgia-Cumberland Conference have chosen a life of service. Why not set your mind wholeheartedly and join them in their service to God. Your decision will bring a tremendous blessing to your family. Partner with the education ministry in your local community as a witness of your faith. 

Choose, as Joshua did, to serve God unashamedly with all your heart, and then watch to see how God blesses your family.


Leading children to Christ through loving, learning, and living.


Growing mature disciples through collaborative relationships.

GCC Schools and Philosophy

The Office of Education serves a total of 37 schools in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.  Our team is committed to supporting churches and schools as they prepare students for the kingdom and a joyful life of service as outlined in North American Division - "Journey to Excellence" and the Adventist EDGE call to action. Schools are accredited by various entities including state and private sectors.

In Georgia-Cumberland Conference, we value every child as a unique individual, created in the image of God with distinctive gifts, talents, and abilities. As Seventh-day Adventist educators, it is our belief that the work of true education is to equip students to think and to act with breadth of mind, clearness of thought, and the courage of their convictions. We believe that each child has a special purpose for being placed on this earth. With this in mind, we seek to provide every opportunity for the spiritual, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth of every student entrusted to our care. It is our fervent prayer and aim to perceive infinite possibilities in our students–inspiring them to love learning, respect others, and develop a character in the likeness of the Creator.
