Desert Adventist Academy

A note from the Principal
Dear Parents,
I know that making the decision about which school will be the best fit for you child is extremely important. We know that school changes lives, and we want your child to be in the best possible learning environment to develop their true potential.
Everything we do at Desert Adventist Academy is intended to help fulfill our mission, which is to build academic excellence with character.  This is the philosophy that we build into our curriculum and that we want our students to adopt.

Mission Statement: 
The Desert Adventist Academy family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve. At Desert Adventist Academy we believe in building Academic Excellence with Character.

Our Philosophy: 
The Desert Adventist Academy 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
  • Mastery of 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.

About our Education:
The Desert Adventist Academy operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Students in the Adventist education system on average score above nationally-normed achievement tests, performing better than 70% of other private and public schools nationwide.
