The mission of the Bowman Hills School is to lead our students into:
Knowing Jesus as “the author and finisher of our faith,” Heb. 12:2,
Growing in “wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man,” Luke 2:52, and
Going and “serving one another in love.” Gal. 5:13
Knowing, Growing, Going.
The Bowman Hills Seventh-day Adventist School, which began in October of 1902, is operated by the Bowman Hills Seventh-day Adventist Church. The school strives to provide a spiritually oriented education for all children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental to the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect God’s authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. Consequently, we believe the best education enables the development of the spiritual, mental, social, and physical powers of all students; preparing them for the joy of service in both this life and the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve these worthy goals, we encourage all students to:
- Develop a personal relationship with God and their fellow men as stated in Matthew 22:37-39, “Jesus replied, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
- Master the basic skills.
- Value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended.
- Cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity.
The Bowman Hills Seventh-day Adventist School is operated in harmony with the educational policies of the Georgia-Cumberland Conference, the Southern Union, the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists and the State of Tennessee.
Students at Bowman Hills School are encouraged to seek and develop a life of faith in God and respect for the dignity of all human beings; to build character akin to that of the Creator; to nurture thinkers rather than mere reflectors of others’ thoughts; to promote loving service rather than selfish ambition; to ensure maximum development of each individual’s potential; and to embrace all that is true, good, and beautiful.
An education of this kind imparts far more than academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the whole person — physically, intellectually, socially, and spiritually. Working together; homes, schools, and churches cooperate with divine agencies in preparing learners for responsible citizenship in this world and in the world to come.
