Greaves – Sartigan Adventist Academy

Adventist Education in Quebec

Greaves Adventist Academy is a private Christian school connected to a world-wide Seventh-day Adventist school network. The Seventh-day Adventist educational system includes elementary and high schools, colleges, and universities in countries around the globe.
Adventist education differs from other systems, as it follows a Christ-centered approach, creating a school environment rich with opportunities for students and staff to grow in their personal relationship with God. Our religious instruction facilitates this transformational process through the working of the Holy Spirit.

Mission:

Greaves Adventist Academy, a Seventh-day Adventist institution, has for its mission the harmonious development of the mental, physical, social and spiritual faculties of the student in preparation for a life of service now and for eternity. Through a Christ-centered education, it strives to achieve academic excellence.

In Quebec, we have one Adventist school with two separate campuses. Read below to learn and visit their websites for more information.

MONTREAL CAMPUS

Greaves Adventist Academy’s Montreal campus is a private, non-subsidized English school located in the west end of Montreal, Quebec and is accredited both provincially and denominationally. We are owned and operated by the Quebec Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

At Greaves Adventist Academy we focus on providing sound Christian education to all Seventh-day Adventist families, but not to the exclusion of families of different faiths who understand and appreciate our philosophy and are willing to respect our Biblical world-view. Our school family is rich in ethnic diversity. Click here to visit our school website and watch our video below to catch a glimpse of our school family.

SARTIGAN CAMPUS

Sartigan Campus is a private, non-subsidized, multi-grade bilingual school with a warm family feel made up of a tight-knit community. This institution is part of the worldwide network of educational institutions developed and administered by Seventh-day Adventists. We have been operating in the Beauce region since 2008 and are licensed by the Ministry of Education and Superior Education in Quebec. Click here to visit our website and learn more.
