EDUCATION

With 11 elementary schools and 1 academy, our conference is a strong supporter of Adventist Education.  Montana churches are dedicated in making sure that SDA schools are one of the most important parts of their local budgets. Mt. Ellis Academy, one of the oldest boarding schools in North America, has been offering a quality Christian education for well over a hundred years. God has blessed our schools and we know that Christian education “doesn’t cost…it pays!”
