Our philosophy of education is based on the belief that all true wisdom and knowledge comes from God. The mission of Caldwell Adventist Elementary School (CAES) is to help each student develop spiritually, mentally, socially and physically. While we value the rigorous pursuit of knowledge, our main objective is to help students develop a solid Christian character, to realize their individual worth as children of God, embrace Christian values, and learn to make principled choices. It is also our mission to provide opportunities for students to accept Christ as their Savior. Our philosophy and commitment to excellence is encapsulated in our school motto: "A Higher Standard."
