The Adventist interests in propagating education was founded upon the philosophy that students at all levels of schooling possess individuality and should be educated to use their God-given capacities to become individuals of principle, qualified for any position of life. Education was to begin in the home where the basic values of redemptive discipline and mental and physical health were to be balanced with the importance of work.

Since these early days Adventists have embraced the philosophy that education should be redemptive in nature, for the purpose of restoring human beings to the image of God, our Creator. Mental, physical, social, and spiritual health, intellectual growth, and service to humanity form a core of values that are essential aspects of the Adventist education philosophy.

To ensure that the church gives appropriate and professional approach to the church's education interests, an Education Department was established on all levels of the church's administrative system, with responsibility to ensure that the Adventist philosophy of education and the principles of faith-and-learning are integrated into the life of each of its 1.5 million students in its 7,500 schools, colleges and universities around the world. Working closely with the education offices of the 13 world divisions (regions) of the church, operating schools in nearly 145 countries, staff at the corporate world headquarters helps to ensure the quality of the global Seventh-day Adventist educational system and its work also includes collaboration with other ministries of the church to help nurture the faith of Adventist students attending colleges and universities outside of the denomination system worldwide.

Two publications support the ministry of education and are edited at the world headquarters education office:

Journal of Adventist Education is a bimonthly professional journal for Seventh-day Adventist teachers from kindergarten through university level, as well as educational administrators at all levels. Each issue features articles on a variety of topics relating to Christian education, applications of Christian education, the integration of faith and learning in the classroom and other devotional items.

Dialogue is an international network journal published especially for Adventist college and university students and professionals. It addresses issues relating to the interface between Biblical-Christianity and contemporary culture. Available in four languages English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish, Dialogue has readers in more than 110 countries of the world.
