Columbia Adventist Academy has been part of the Lexington community for decades.
Our students participate in community service activities every year, and our graduates have gone on to careers in engineering, computer science, entrepreneurship and the medical fields. You may drive right past our campus regularly, without even realizing it!
Our teachers are committed to nurturing a passion for learning by providing interactive educational experiences for your child.
Columbia focuses on modern learning styles that promote activity-based learning and develop each child's unique passions. Students discover a zest for learning when educational experiences are expanded beyond the four walls of the classroom.
By joining our school, you and your child become a part of a community.
Columbia brings educators and parents together as partners to provide a safe and nurturing environment for students to grow. Children learn how to make good, moral decisions based on the biblical principles of love, grace and forgiveness. Each student is encouraged to think for themselves and embrace their God-given gifts and talents.
The safety of your child is important—not just physically, but also emotionally.
Columbia offers a sense of security, allowing your child to feel comfortable learning and exploring. When children feel safe, they are naturally inclined to ask more questions, share their feelings, and develop healthier levels of trust.
From an early age, your child is given opportunities to discover and share their talents.
Students learn how to collaborate on group projects, which builds confidence and encourages interpersonal skills. Social-emotional knowledge is just as important in the success of your child as academics. We encourage our students to flourish in the way they relate to one another and the world at large.
We believe that a relationship with Jesus Christ is the foundation of true education.
We know Columbia Adventist Academy can't actually give your child a relationship with Jesus, but we do have the privilege of planting seeds of faith on a daily basis. When students see their teachers and classmates grow in their own walk with Jesus, this example fosters their own spiritual growth.
Columbia Adventist Academy is part of the Seventh-day Adventist system of education, the second largest private educational system in the world.
Columbia is accredited by Adventist Education, the national organization with standards exceeding those of our regional accrediting body, and every teacher has credentials from the state. That means you can rest assured that your child will receive the highest-quality education available, with accountable oversight at both the regional and national levels.

As parents, my wife and I have chosen to invest in Adventist education for our daughter because of the difference it made in our lives.Todd, parent
I went there starting in first grade. Early on, I was encouraged to participate, not only in sports, but in music and leading out in worship. I am grateful that my school has given me opportunities to lead.Alexandra, age 14
I am not a Seventh-day Adventist, but I choose to send my daughter to an Adventist school because I see how much she is loved there. Her happiness and sense of belonging means everything to me.Krista, parent
