About Learning Tree Elementary School

Who Are We?

Serving the greater Dalton area in Georgia, Learning Tree is a fully accredited Christian school for Pre-K to 8th grade.  We are a part of the world-wide Seventh-day Adventist school network that includes elementary and high schools, colleges and universities in countries around the globe. Established in 1853, Adventist education is the second largest parochial system in the world and the only fully integrated parochial system, with an enrollment that easily surpasses two million, and operates over 1,000 K-12 schools here in North America. We believe that the Creator’s design is for “whole person” development–mental, physical, and spiritual–and that, no matter what your religion or philosophy of life, an Adventist education can help your child make better moral decisions and grow up to become a trustworthy community leader.
