The Education Department supports approximately 300 educational facilities across the Southern Union–childcare centers, pre-kindergarten thru grade 12 schools, and 3 universities–which employ over 1000 educators who together educate more than 17,000 students annually. The department was founded on the divine imperative that “all our children should be taught of the Lord,” Isaiah 54:13.

The Education Department has implemented a school improvement initiative; Adventist EDGE, which promotes excellence in all Southern Union schools.
