The LAA Advantage

 

Louisville Adventist Academy is a parent- and student-oriented academy that offers an outstanding Christian alternative to public schools and expensive private schools. Our small-school, multi-grade setting will give your child a chance to be a big fish in a small pond by offering many of the same opportunities afforded in larger schools while allowing most or all students to participate.

OUR MISSION

The mission of Louisville Adventist Academy is to assist students to develop spiritually, mentally, socially, and physically through the guidance of qualified teachers, a Christ-centered curriculum, and Biblical values. The Louisville Adventist Academy family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.

OUR PURPOSE

Louisville Adventist Academy's purpose is to not only provide a strong academic curriculum where students excel in academics, but to provide a Christian atmosphere where students may grow as young Christian boys and girls. LAA provides the opportunity for young people to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Louisville 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
  • 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.
