The Berea S.D.A. Academy is accredited by the Boston School Department and by the Board of Regents of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. The Academy is a member of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. BAAS was founded and operates upon the belief that God created men and women and that the Creator is vitally interested in their destiny. We believe that our students are children of God and our teachers, servants of God. Our school is commissioned, therefore, to follow the will of God. The Seventh-day Adventist Church operates a school system to insure that its youth are guided into attaining the fullest possible development of their mental, physical, spiritual, and social capacities, in harmony with denominational standards and ideals. Seventh-day Adventists conduct their schools for the express purpose of transmitting to their children ideals that teach the fundamental beliefs of the church. As a Seventh-day Adventist school, Berea believes that the biblical scriptures should occupy a unique position in education. Biblical study, however, is never allowed to compromise the school's high academic standards. It is our belief that the highest and the best intellectual abilities of each student should be discovered and challenged. To this end we endeavor to obtain those teachers that are both spiritually and intellectually qualified to fully fulfill this responsibility. BAAS is a co-educational Christian institution established by the Berea SDA Church for the purpose of training children for the citizenship in this world and the world to come. The school aims to promote academic excellence in a safe and caring environment for the student. BSAA admits students of any race, creed, religion, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
