Frequently Asked Questions


Below you will find information on the CAES COVID-19 Policy being enacted at the school. Please contact the office if you have any questions. 



Does my family have to be Adventist for my child to attend an Adventist school?

Absolutely not, though you and your child will gain the most benefit from Adventist education if you are a Christian, or are sympathetic with Christian beliefs.


Will an Adventist school try to turn my child into a Seventh-day Adventist?

At an Adventist school, students’ freedom to think for themselves is respected and nurtured. Students are encouraged to learn how to make good moral decisions regardless of their creed or belief system. However, students are expected to uphold the student pledge and respect the values of our school.


What is the Seventh-day Adventist Church?

The worldwide Adventist church has over 15 million members in more than 200 countries. Adventists operate:
  • 7200+ schools worldwide with nearly 1.5 million students
  • They also run 168 hospitals worldwide
  • 138 nursing homes and retirement centers
  • 442 clinics and dispensaries
  • 34 orphanages and children’s homes.
  • In addition, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA), an international, disaster-relief organization, funds over 2,400 projects in 112 countries.


Student Enrichments:

Junior Achievement of Idaho brings financial literacy skills into the classroom taught by local business mentors


Idaho Learning Center for student academic support and educational therapy


Reality Town provides a simulation event to teach real-life financial responsibility and includes community volunteers from local businesses.

The underlying goal is to create a "Go On" culture in the school where all students will know and believe that they can set and achieve their post-secondary school goals.  Education beyond high school is something our students hear about across the curriculum as a part of our normal routine. We are eager to re-emphasize that goal with greater precision and learn new ways to encourage college planning and readiness, thanks to these grant funds.


The J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation is a private family foundation committed to the vision of a world-class education that prepares Idaho's citizens for the 21st Century and beyond.  For more information about the Foundation, visit
