Mission

Mayfair Christian School places Jesus Christ at the center of all school experiences.  It is our mission to promote the spiritual, social, physical, and academic development of all of our students.  We will prepare every child to be an ambassador of Christ’s love to their communities and the entire world.

Educational Philosophy

Mayfair Christian School believes that the highest purpose of education is to “restore in man the image of his maker, to bring him back to the perfection which he was created, to promote the development of body, mind, and soul…” (Education, pp. 15, 16).  Further, we believe that true education provides the student with a sense of purpose in life that will fuel the student’s commitment to selfless service in whatever occupation or walk of life they choose.  In addition to preparing our students for successive educational challenges and life after school, we also commit to the task of preparing each student for a life of Christian service and devotion.

The establishment of Mayfair Christian School is a combined missionary effort of the Akron, Barberton, and Canton area Seventh-day Adventists Churches, and the Ohio Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.  The school was created for the express purpose of providing Christian-based education to Seventh-day Adventist young people, and to others who may desire the same type of education.  All education here at Mayfair Christian School, will conform to the standards and teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and will spring from the true foundation of the moral and spiritual teaching of the Word of God.
