Grades: 9-12 | 95 students
Mount Vernon Academy is a Seventh-day Adventist Christian environment devoted to the preparation of students as disciples of Jesus Christ through spiritual development and academic excellence.
We are all created in the image of God.
For this reason, the primary purpose of Mount Vernon Academy is to develop Creator-like powers in our students that are God-given to all humans: creativity, individuality, and the power to think, to choose, and to do.
We exist to provide a quality education in an environment where students and staff are in the process of continuously improving their love, trust, and relationships with Jesus Christ and each other.
The object of education at Mount Vernon Academy, then, is to develop these powers in our students so that they will think and act as individuals, not mere reflectors of someone else’s thoughts and actions.
