Highland Academy is a Seventh-day Adventist boarding and day school located on a 400-acre (160 ha) campus in Portland, Tennessee. It is owned and operated by the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.

General Information[edit]

Highland Academy is a co-educational boarding and day school. Any students grades 9 through 12 may attend, provided that they express and demonstrate a definite interest in receiving a Christian education. The mission of Highland Academy is to develop Christ-like characters and lifelong learners. To this end, its staff and students strive to cultivate a vibrant relationship with God and a passion for self-motivated spiritual, mental, physical, and social development.

The school does not have varsity or inter-school sports, but features an active intramural sports program and large gymnastics team.

The school offers a variety of jobs for students to offset the cost of tuition. Three Signature Healthcare companies located on Highland's campus also provide work opportunities - these are The Bridge at Highland (a nursing home and rehabilitation center), and SHC Construction

Campus[edit]

The campus is made up about 400 acres and includes an administration facility with classrooms, music building, boys' dormitory, girls' dormitory with the cafeteria on the ground floor, gymnasium, grounds/maintenance building, and woodworking shop.

Other notable structures on campus include an outdoor classroom, small cabins for attendees of the annual camp meeting held on campus, and a building for temporary book and food storage/sales during camp meeting. There are several areas with water and electric hookups to be used during that time.

A church with approximately 700 members is located next to the campus. Students and faculty join with community there for religious services.[1] Highland Elementary School is also located nearby. Highland Elementary is operated by the Highland Seventh-day Adventist Church and offers grades Pre-K to 8.[1]
