Student Life

Our faculty and staff are committed, adaptable, and resilient. These qualities have made it possible for our staff and faculty to continue to create an environment that allows our students to thrive. We’re excited to welcome our returning students and new students, either in-person (hybrid) or virtually.

Here at Atholton Adventist Academy, students are also given many opportunities to develop leadership skills. Students lead in our weekly chapel program, engage in our cross-age mentoring opportunities (Bible studies, Big Buddies/Little Buddies), and have opportunities to serve on our Student Association.

God made us each unique – and we believe there is a special way that each of our students is able to make a powerful impact for God’s Kingdom. We know that we are blessed in order to be a blessing to others. That’s why we intentionally equip our students through academic and character education so they can effectively be God’s hands and feet wherever life may take them.
