The Purpose and Mission of Kalamazoo SDA Junior Academy

We believe it to be our privelege and duty to provide Christian education for our children, to bring them up in the instruction and counsel of the Lord, to provide for them an environment which will facilitate the development of Christian character and academic excellence, to help them obtain victory in their daily conflict with sin, to educate them for service to God, to their church, to their country, and to humanity, and cause them to understand the doctrines and mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. 

Kalamazoo Junior Academy  is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Why Choose a Seventh-day Adventist School?


A recent study, Cognitive Genesis, has shown that students in Seventh-day Adventist schools score higher than the national average 
in the following subjects: reading; math; language arts; social studies; science; and sources of information.
The study has also found that the longer a student studies in an Adventist school, the more average achievement increases.
