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 - 850 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.
