The Adventist Encounter Curriculum is a seamless curriculum that is intentional about exploring big-picture, spiritual concepts with the goal of making a difference for eternity. This curriculum uses the four walls of the classroom to help build a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ, using the Bible as the source of truth. Through rigorous pedagogical practice and 21st century learning strategies,it explores and develops personal reasons for faith, lifestyle choices, and ethical decision-making from an Adventist worldview, all the while nurturing interpersonal relationships and service to others. A life-long relationship with Jesus Christ that transforms our teachers and students lives is the goal. 



Access to the materials on this site is limited to those who teach in Adventist schools in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and education students at Avondale College.
