Laurelbrook School is a co-educational self-supporting school, cooperating closely with the educational department of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination and operated in accordance with the principles set forth in the Bible and in the writings of Ellen G. White, whom Seventh-day Adventists believe had the gift of prophecy and a close relationship with God. 

Situated on roughly 2000 acres on the top of Dayton Mountain ten miles from Dayton, Tennessee, Laurelbrook operates a 9-12 grade boarding high-school level program, an elementary school for staff students, and a 50-bed state-approved nursing home, and a large truck garden.  The program is accredited by the State of Tennessee (USA) through the E.A. Sutherland Educational Association or EASEA, a state-chartered educational accrediting agency.

Our staff are committed to providing quality education in a Christ-filled environment.

The Educational Program

The high-school level program has several aims:  

  • To develop in the student a sense of the dignity of labor and of financial responsibility; to demonstrate to the student that work is a blessing and a safeguard from temptation.
  • To train the youth to be thinkers, and not mere reflectors of other men's thoughts.
  • To direct the minds of the youth to God's own revelation of Himself in His Word and in nature through appreciative, systematic and experimental study.
  • To provide opportunities for learning the joys of Christian service.
  • To teach the necessity and the power of application.
  • To help the student develop those health habits which will provide the foundation of healthful living that is essential for any achievement in life.
  • To develop a sincere interest in and appreciation for cultural and avocational activities that ennoble and uplift the participant, in the fields of music, reading, hobbies and recreation.
