Rio Lindo Adventist Academy is unique.
 We are the Adventist boarding academy for the Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
 Our co-educational high school offers a commitment to excellence in its quiet, safe and picturesque location.
Our culturally diverse student body creates an opportunity to interact globally while fostering a close-knit community based on mutual respect.
 Every student is encouraged to develop their potential in a nurturing environment.
 Staff, who live on campus and students work, study, pray, and socialize together, create lasting relationships unique to the boarding school experience.Rio’s ultimate goal in teaching is to maximize every student’s potential, no matter the background; to make student thinkers and not mere reflectors of others’ opinions, whether in the classroom, church, or among peers.
 Rio’s tagline is “Learn.
Lead.” and our hope is that every student will graduate and make a difference in the world by continuing to learn, serve, and lead.
