    Summary of Educational Institutions, 1903

    The educational work and institutions among Seventh-day Adventists have grown in proportion to other branches of the message. As shown from the General Conference Year Book for 1904, there are at this date nine colleges and academies in America, and five in other countries. Those of other countries are located as follows: At Avondale, New South Wales; Kenilworth, Claremont, near Cape Town, South Africa; Holloway, London, North, England; Nyhyttan, J”rnboas, Sweden; Friedensau, near Magdeburg, Germany.GSAM 402.1

    There are in America intermediate schools, fourteen; in other countries, five. The latter are located at Copenhagen, Denmark; Honolulu, Hawaiian Territory; Diamante, Entre Rios, Argentine Republic, South America; Curityba, Brazil, South America; Brusque, Brazil, South America.GSAM 402.2

    In addition to the above-mentioned educational institutions, there are 357 local church schools conducted by the denomination. Of these 317 are in the United States, and forty in other countries. Had we accurate statistics to date, these figures would be largely increased. Many schools have been opened since the close of 1902. For instances, the Nebraska Conference reported having ten church schools. Feb. 1, 1904, their report shows “twenty-four church schools,” an increase of fourteen in one conference.GSAM 402.3

    Truly the Lord’s guiding hand has wonderfully directed and opened the way for the educational work among this people. May he give wisdom to those who are called to manage this branch of his cause, that the various schools may be conducted in harmony with the plan he has outlined. Then will there be multitudes of efficient, well-developed workers for the Master, and not men and women “one-sided” in education and character. “The Lord gave the word,” says the psalmist, and “great was the company [army, margin] that published it.”GSAM 402.4
