Church School

In Seventh-day Adventist education, a day school conducted by a local church or by a group of churches (occasionally by a denominational institution) providing Christian training and general elementary education. The term church school is generally used synonymously with the term elementary school , although some churches conduct a nine- or 10-grade school, which is officially called an intermediate school, but in common usage a junior academy.
