Highland Academy's mission is to provide a Christ-centered education as revealed in God's Word that assists students in developing an eternal relationship with Christ, to honor God, and to serve a global society.
Highland Academy's philosophy is to teach the beliefs, ideals and customs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as well as to lead its students to ascertain and accept, in practice and sentiment, the mind and will of God as revealed in His Word.
This unique educational approach is based on the belief of a harmonious development of the physical, mental, social and spiritual elements within each student.
Our school seeks to provide a Christ-centered curriculum and program of activities, utilizing the inspired counsel given to the church, as well as appropriate secular theories, in its implementation.
The school seeks to develop an attitude of service in each student.
This concept of community is stressed to develop a well-rounded member of a global society and, above all else, loyal, conscientious Christians.
Highland Academy, in cooperation with the home and the church, accepts as its basic evangelistic task the education and redemption of its students.
