Standout is a public high school retreat created by the enrollment team at Andrews University in order to respond to the growing concerns of Adventist youth choosing public schools over Adventist schools. Since the statistics of youth who leave the Seventh-day Adventist church are grim for those who attend public schools, the enrollment team decided to address the issue. The team created a weekend on the campus of Andrews University specifically geared towards public high school students (while including home-schooled youth) in hopes of inspiring Adventist youth to seek a deeper experience with Christ and in turn begin to make future decisions based on His guidance. Recognizing that these decisions may or may not lead them to Andrews University was not a deterring factor as the primary focus was to create a community of youth that seeks after God and to build their identity as Seventh-day Adventist Christians.
