The John L. Coble Elementary School exists to inspire leadership, service, character and academic excellence. 


The John L. Coble Elementary School is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:

  • develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • master the basic academic skills
  • value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.



The John L. Coble Elementary School operates in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

John L. Coble Elementary opened its doors in 1965 so that young people in Gordon County could obtain the very best in educational opportunities in a spiritual environment.

Coble Elementary is a Seventh-day Adventist Christian elementary and middle school that is a part of one of the largest church-supported systems in the world.

Coble Elementary is fully accredited and recognized by the State of Georgia and practices a nondiscriminatory admission policy.

Coble Elementary goes a step beyond learning. Students’ physical, mental and spiritual growth are nurtured. Education and maturation go hand in hand. Students are challenged in the classroom to develop their potential to learn and desire to succeed. Lessons are presented to emphasize the mastery of skill. Music, library/media/technology and community service are tools and experiences used to broaden the horizons of the students, which are vital to good child development.

A few of the extra-curricular activities that excite our students are Lego Robotics, intramural basketball, band, bell choir, strings and the Bel Canto choir.

Tucked away in a beautiful country setting, students, teachers, and administrators strive to provide a clean, happy, and safe environment.
