Spiritual Master Plan

Educational philosophy of the Institute

The Adventist Institute, with its faculty, preceptors, and campus staff, has always felt the responsibility to offer an educational project capable of fostering the integral development of the person. Female and male students are welcomed and accompanied along a path of listening and spiritual, human, and social as well as academic growth.

“True education, in fact, is more than the attendance at a certain course of study; it is more than a preparation for the present life: it concerns the whole being and the whole period of existence available to a man; it is the harmonious development of the physical, mental and spiritual faculties of the individual. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the greater joy of more com-plete service in the world to come.”

E.G. White

The Christian principles that inspire the Institute’s work and motivate its policy and academic choices flow from a precise confession of faith, which can be summarized as follows:

  • We believe in God as the Creator of the Universe.
  • We believe that the Scriptures in the mediation of the Spirit reveal the Word of God and we desire to experience more and more of its effectiveness
  • We accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, and the Holy Spirit as the One who makes us acts of service to God and neighbor through His gifts
  • We desire to live consistently the ethical principles expressed in the gospel
  • We understand Christian "vocation" as a call to service
  • We testify of Christ and His salvation to the world
  • We advocate a concrete and passionate commitment to justice and the promotion of appropriate service spaces
  • We desire to progress together with our students and staff toward deeper spiritual maturity in our relationship with God and others
  • We are committed to leading a balanced and healthy life, fully valuing the gift of life offered by God
  • We sense a responsibility to cooperate positively in the pursuit of the educational and spiritual purposes and activities of the Institute


"... what God does is forever."

The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man, having found it, hides; and, for the joy of it, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field
. Matthew 13:44

The Spiritual Master Plan that will guide our reflection this year is inspired by the text from Matthew 13:44 “Hidden Joy.” Looking around us, the reality we face often presents itself to us as harsh, gloomy and uncertain. However, our world is not joyless. The seeds of God’s Kingdom are in the field, hidden but present. During the academic year 2023-2024, we will set out in search of this treasure, all together, mindful of his promise, “I have told you these things, that my joy may abide in you and that your joy may be complete” (John 15:11).
