Minnesota Seventh-day Adventist Schools

Christian education has been a priority for Seventh-day Adventists from the very earliest years. Many of us have fond memories of school days spent together with friends whether it be in a little one room school house or at Maplewood Academy in a dorm full of giggling girls or with a team of guys shooting hoops. As we matured we learned to appreciate the foundation that Christian teachers and staff had laid for us. We also grew to understand the sacrifices that our parents made so that we could attend SDA schools. As you read the stories of our schools you will see how God’s hand was over all, continually providing for His children. Join us now as we travel back in time to the days of our youth!
