Mother Lode Adventist Jr Academy is a part of a quality worldwide educational system, the second largest private system in North America.
We offer an exceptional educational program that emphasizes the basic fundamentals of education.
We believe that our children should acquire the ability to read with comprehension, spell correctly, write accurately, and speak clearly.
The basics are fundamental in any program; however, the application of these basics to everyday life is the truest application of advanced curriculum.
