Applegate Adventist Junior Academy


The Apple­gate Adven­tist Acad­emy fam­ily exists to show chil­dren Jesus, nur­ture their love for Him and oth­ers, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.

The Apple­gate 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.

The Apple­gate Adven­tist Acad­emy oper­ates in har­mony with the guid­ance and direc­tion of the Office of Edu­ca­tion, North Amer­i­can Divi­sion of the Seventh-day Adven­tist Church.
