I am considering enrolling my son in a private school this fall and we have two options in our area- one is Catholic and the other is Seventh Day Adventist. The Catholic school is a little further and has about 400 students. The SDA school has about 125 students and does mixed grade levels. They are the same price.
I am very familiar with Catholic schools but know nothing about SDA- Any ideas on which is better academically? I don't personally know anyone at either school. All I really know about SDA is that their beliefs are very different - more strict maybe than Catholic?? Need some advice!!

You should visit each school. Find out about their curriculum, teaching methods and test scores. What school makes the best fit for your kids and family is hard to say.

My grandmother is SDA, they have diet restrictions that they probably follow if the school offers lunches, idk if that is something to consider for you. I would suggest looking into the teachings of the church more in depth, because they will be teaching them in their religious classes, then decide which is closer to your beliefs.
Every school is different, depending on the area, so it's hard to say which would be better academically. I know my grandmother is having some issues with the SDA school in her area that my cousin is going to, they are doing ACE PACE Packs, which they find to be lacking, but the school in your area may use something different.
