Adventist education seeks to develop a life of faith in God and respect for the dignity of all human beings; to build character akin to that of the Creator; to nurture thinkers rather than mere reflectors of others' thoughts; to promote loving service rather than selfish ambition; to ensure maximum development of each individual's potential; and to embrace all that is true, good, and beautiful.
We are a private Christian school operated by the Seventh-day Adventist organization. We have been in the business of education for over 20 years and currently educate students from Pre K4 through 8th grade.
The mission of Lithonia Adventist Academy (LAA) is to:
- Provide a well balanced, affordable Christian education for Seventh-day Adventist church members and surrounding communities.
- Build character and prepare students to achieve academic excellence.
- Prepare LAA students for service in this world and the world to come.
“Seeking First the Kingdom”
The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes God as the ultimate source of existence and truth. In the beginning God created in His image a perfect humanity, a perfection later marred by sin. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, God's character and purposes can be understood as revealed in nature, the Bible, and Jesus Christ. The distinctive characteristics of Adventist education, derived from the Bible and the inspired writings of Ellen G. White, point to the redemptive aim of true education: to restore human beings into the image of their Maker.
An education of this kind imparts far more than academic knowledge. It fosters a balanced development of the whole person-physically, intellectually, socially, and spiritually. Working together, homes, schools, and churches cooperate with divine agencies in preparing learners for responsible citizenship in this world and in the world to come.
