The mission of Spencerville Adventist Academy is to provide Seventh-day Adventist education which is committed to prepare, nurture, and inspire students for a Christ-centered life now and forever.
Spencerville Adventist Academy recognizes God as the ultimate source of existence and truth.
In the beginning, God created in His image a perfect humanity, a perfection later marred by sin.
Through Christ and His Spirit, God determined to restore humanity from its lost state.
Through the Bible, He has revealed His will to the world, a revelation that supersedes human reason. Spencerville's primary purpose is to bring its students to an understanding and acceptance of God's plan of salvation and restoration through Jesus Christ.
