The experiences of our youth shape us for a lifetime

Columbia Adventist Academy offers a safe place for your child to grow, academically and spiritually. As your child matures, we seek to nurture a passion for learning and a desire to connect in a relationship with Christ. That's why we think Columbia could be the perfect fit for your family.

A Local Institution

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!

Quality Academics

A Passion for Learning

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.

Sense of Belonging

A Sense of Belonging

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.

Safe Environment

A Safe Environment

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.

Confident Leadership

Inspiring Confident Leadership

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.

Christian Spirituality

Seeds of Faith

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.

Adventist Education

An Accountable System

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.
