Southland Adventist Christian School

Welcome to the Southland Adventist Christian School. We are committed to providing our students with the best quality Christian education in Southland. Indeed our vision is “Learning and Growing Together for Life and Eternity.”

The purpose of the school is to lead young people into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ by developing their characters, minds and academic skills for service to God and man for life and eternity.

The Southland Adventist Christian School is an integrated co-education day school with a comprehensive programme comprising both primary and intermediate education, from New Entrants to year 8.

The school is owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, principally for the education of its youth. It provides education in harmony with the beliefs, values, life-style and commitment of the church. Emphasis is placed on the development of a Christian character and a life of service in the community.

The first Seventh-day Adventist School in Invercargill was opened in 1955. By 1968 conditions had become a little cramped, so a new school was built at the present site at Waikiwi. The school is run by the Board of Trustees consisting of members elected by the parents, Seventh-day Adventist Church proprietor representatives, the principal and staff representative. Over the past fews year the roll has grown. In 2019 we received a maximum roll increase meaning we can now have up to 100 students.

In 2020, construction started on our new school building at the old Waikiwi School site. For all the up-dates on these project, please visit the Southland Adventist Christian School Facebook page.
