Greater Boston Academy was founded on the belief that God created humanity and is vitally interested in the destiny of that creation.
As a PreK-12 Christian educational institution, we operate with the intention to pursue the development of the mental, physical, spiritual and social powers instilled in us at creation.
In a Seventh-day Adventist Christian environment, Greater Boston Academy and Edgewood Elementary School provide the basis for students to develop to their fullest potential.
In all aspects of the school program, emphasis is placed on the life-long development of character founded on biblical principles; high standards for personal scholarship; guidelines for healthful living; and a sense of community, responsibility and service.
We believe the Creator continues to be vitally interested in the destiny of all people, in the biblical record of creation, the account of the fall of man, and the subsequent plan of redemption.
