Dakota Adventist Academy

  • High school should be full of learning, fun, friendship and new experiences.
  • At Dakota Adventist Academy, we have you covered. DAA is a Seventh-day Adventist Christian high school that welcomes students of all faiths and backgrounds. Because DAA is a boarding school, our students get to live on campus with their friends.
  • That makes for closer friendships and a more inclusive education.
  • It's an experience like no other. Our campus sits just outside of Bismarck, North Dakota, surrounded by the history and beauty of the Lewis and Clark Trail and the Missouri River.
  • We have lots of room to spread our wings here-1,300 acres of rolling green hills to call home.
  • We are proud of our beautiful campus, which features a spacious gym, well-maintained ball fields, dormitories, modern classrooms, on-campus horse barn, and a lot of space to learn and play. Want to learn more about DAA and find out what makes our school special Start by exploring our website.
