Ozark Adventist Academy

Located in the foothills of the beautiful Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas, Ozark Adventist Academy is a boarding high school offering a friendly, family type atmosphere. It is owned and operated by the Arkansas-Louisiana Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

Principal's Council Fundraiser

When we look around at the young people filling our classrooms, walking down our hallways, and laughing in our cafeteria, we are sometimes reminded of the privilege God has given us to train young people for His service. But we believe this is not just our school. This is God's school. And this is your school. To all of us who strive to serve God and who bear his name, it is our school. The Principal's Council, a group of Ozark friends and alumni, is seeking to enrich our campus and our students. Their current campaign invites others to join together and become monthly partners in giving. If a thousand people gave $100 a month, and if two thousand people gave $50 a month, and four thousand people gave only $25 a month, what an effect it would have on our campus! It would provide $300,000 a month, and $3,600,000 a year. We would like to invite you to become a monthly partner with the Principal's Council as we invest in the future of Ozark and future workers in God's vineyard.

Latest News and Announcements

Ozark Adventist Academy has started a process to craft and execute a Continuous School Improvement -CSI Plan. To do this, we put together a Continuous School Improvement -CSI Team composed of 16 representatives from school staff, teachers, parents, and community members who met several times during the months of September and October of the 2023-2024 school year. The hard work and commitment of this team has produced a CSI Plan with 5 main goals and accompanying action steps that came from the priorities evidenced from the data used to assess our school needs. The school CSI Team will continue to meet once a month to go over the progress that is being made in each one of the goals and action steps. Corrective actions will be taken and revisions will be made to the plan as tasks are completed and progress is made toward achieving each goal. All are invited to join us in our efforts to move OAA forward.
