While all schools intend to nurture the intellectual and academic life of their students, Columbia Adventist Academy is unique because we aim to educate the whole person. In other words, the goal of Columbia Adventist Academy is to nurture all aspects of our personhood - mind, body, and spirit.
For over 100 years, Columbia Adventist Academy has provided this holistic approach to education, creating a school that has been nationally recognized for its strong academic program, warm and hospitable atmosphere, highly motivated and involved students, dedicated teachers, and dynamic religious life.
We welcome students of all faiths to join our school community and to be a part of our tradition of excellence.
School size is an extremely important factor in shaping a student's academic and school experience. Unlike large public schools, at CAA no student gets lost in the crowd. Our classes are small enough for teachers to provide adequate attention and our whole student body has the feel of a big family. In addition, our smaller community allows many students the opportunity to be involved in leadership positions, athletic teams, and music groups.
The Battle Ground and Meadow Glade communities in which our school is located have seen tremendous growth in the past few years, yet the campus continues to maintain a rural ambiance.
To be confident that credits from a high school are accepted at colleges and universities, the school must be appropriately accredited. Columbia Adventist Academy is one of the few Christian schools in Southwest Washington accredited by the State of Washington and the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges.
We are also accredited by the Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges, and Universities.
