As a Christian K-12 college preparatory school, La Sierra Adventist Academy serves students from diverse backgrounds by providing the learning opportunities and skills needed to contribute to society, to prepare for life's work, and to flourish spiritually.
The aim of Seventh-day Adventist education at La Sierra Academy is to provide a safe environment in which Christ-centered instruction results in the experience of redemption and the transformation of character. The program is founded on this spiritual goal which permeates all aspects of the program as it endeavors to meet the mental, physical, and social needs of the student body.
Our main goal is to provide a rich Christian education to our students and families. Our teachers are among the finest because they care for each child and family in their room.
