The CognitiveGenesis Study
.

CognitiveGenesis is a groundbreaking study that indicates that students in U.S. Adventist schools perform a half-grade-level better than the national average.  And the longer they attend, the greater the success. 

The longer children attend Adventist schools, the higher their average achievement.

CognitiveGenesis is a 4-year study following 30,000 students, grades 3–9 and 11, enrolled in Adventist schools across North America.

 

This groundbreaking and rigorous research, conducted by La Sierra University, is validating what parents, teachers, and students involved in Adventist education have known for years—that, on average, Adventist school students perform better.

 

Not only do students score a half-grade-level higher in all subjects on average, but the more years they attend an Adventist school, the more their average achievement jumps—up to the 73rd percentile.

 

Whether an Adventist school is big or small, children can achieve on a higher level there.

It doesn't matter how large or small the school is.  It doesn't matter how many students there are, or the number of grades per teacher—or even how many grades are in one classroom together.  Children achieve at the same high level—an average of half a grade above predicted in all subjects.

 

This is according to CognitiveGenesis, a 4-year study conducted at La Sierra University following 30,000 students, grades 3–9 and 11, enrolled in Adventist schools across the United States.

Not only do students who attend Adventist schools achieve half a grade level higher in all subjects than predicted based on their ability scores, but they also gain the benefits of Adventist education shown by other research—strong spiritual lives and healthy lifestyle choices.
