On March 26, 2015 the Potomac Conference Corporation formed the Takoma Park Adventist Education Planning Commission, where leaders of three Takoma Park-based (Md.) Seventh-day Adventist schools — John Nevins Andrews, Sligo Adventist and Takoma Academy — are exploring the possibility of creating a new model of education for Pre k – 12th grade.
A steering committee, comprised of the leadership of each participating school, is working to explore and design proposals for further consideration. Such a plan will take time, research and resources and require the approval of the governing bodies of all involved schools and their constituent churches. To date, participants have developed a statement that articulates their vision for the steering committee’s work: To create an innovative model of Adventist education that provides a holistic learning experience, nurtures faith, develops character and promotes academic excellence from Pre k – 12th grade.
Meanwhile, all the schools are focusing on proceeding with their existing plans for the 2015-16 school year. As plans progress, we will share more information. Inquiries and suggestions may be directed to Keith Hallam, Vice President for Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org
