Providing mission-driven, strategic consultations in program development; personnel; school accreditation; teacher certification; in addition to formulating system policies are among a host of services rendered to local conferences that comprise the Columbia Union. The Office of Education is wholly committed to advance the cause of Seventh-day Adventist education throughout our field.

Calendar of Columbia Union Education Meetings 

Columbia Union Office of Education conducts its business through direct input from the field, starting with ad hoc committees who report to the Columbia Union Pre-K-12 Curriculum Committee (CUCC). These actions and recommendations are taken to the Columbia Union School Administrators Council (CUSAC) which makes recommendations to the Columbia Union Pre-K-12 Board of Education (CUBOE). The following are the regularly scheduled meeting dates.

Spiritual Academy Leadership Training (SALT) is a special weekend for student leaders in grades 9-12 to receive training in their various leadership roles as well as recommit their lives spiritually. SALT meets annually in September.
