The Southland Adventist Christian School is an integrated co-education day school with a comprehensive programme compromising both primary and intermediate education, from New Entrants to year 8.
The school is owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, principally for the education of its youth. It provides education in harmony with the beliefs, values, life-style and commitment of the church. Emphasis is placed
on the development of a Christian character and a life of service in the community.
The first Seventh-day Adventist School in Invercargill was opened in 1955. By 1968 conditions had become a little cramped, so a new school was built at the present site at Waikiwi. The school is run by the Board of Trustees consisting of members elected by the parents, Seventh-day Adventist Church proprietor representatives, the principal and staff representative.
