Ozark Adventist Academy, located on Dawn Hill E. Road just off Arkansas Highway 59 between Gentry and Siloam Springs, Arkansas, has become a tradition that grew out of a little community church school that was first established about 1900. In time, it became Flint Creek Junior Academy and operated as a locally-supported school until 1941, at which time it was taken over by the Conference and became Ozark Academy. In 1976 the name was changed to Ozark Adventist Academy. Students graduating from Ozark Adventist Academy can be proud of the fine Christian education they have received, set in place by philosophy and goals uniquely designed to maintain the spirit of its fine background.
