Student Employment

gain job experience while in school

Work is not guaranteed to any student, and all students who participate in the work education program should maintain a proper balance between their course and workloads. Students accepting campus employment must maintain their work program until the official close of the school year. If you are looking for student employment at Andrews Academy, you have several options. Please contact our Student Employment Coordinator,  Ms. Gracie Gaytan, to see what jobs are avaliable!

To qualify for possible employment, a student must apply, be accepted and demonstrate his/her intention to attend the Academy. There is no mandatory payroll deduction applied to the student’s account; however the parent may submit an authorization to withhold earnings to the payroll department.

Effective January 2012, Andrews University adopted an all-electronic pay (ePay) system as allowed by Michigan state law. All employees have the option of electing either of the two electronic payment methods at any time, but please be aware that the payroll debit card (“pay card”) does NOT provide access to a checking or savings account. It is strongly advised that the student enroll in the automatic payroll deposit plan through the payroll department at the University. Student eligibility for employment must be verified at the Andrews University Payroll Department. 

If you have any questions regarding the student job search process, please contact the Academy office at (269) 471-3138 or contact us by email at


Partnering for Eternity Program

The Partnering for Eternity Program pairs Academy students with mentors in the community. The student must have a willingness to work (paid position) approximately four to six hours per week in a relationship-oriented activity that could include light housework, yard work, and general cleanup. The mentor becomes the work supervisor for the Academy student, and because of their many years of experience, is able to teach the student some very valuable things about work and a variety of other skills. More than 30 Academy students are currently involved in the PFE Program. Contact Joelle for more information.
