Highland View Academy is a private co-educational secondary boarding school located in Hagerstown, Maryland in the United States, and run by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools 
Mount Aetna Academy was established in 1949 as a day school. It offered education for grades 1-12. That first year there were 50 students enrolled in Grades 1-8 and 30 students enrolled in Grades 9-12. It was located at the present Mount Aetna Adventist Elementary School on Crystal Falls Drive.
At a May, 1965, constituency meeting, the Chesapeake Conference of Seventh-day Adventists voted to build a fully accredited secondary boarding school. On October 9, 1966, ground was broken for the first two buildings, Janel Kay DeHaan Hall and Hartle Hall. The Dehaan and Hartle families participated in this event. The boarding phase of the school opened in the fall of 1967 with one hundred students enrolled. Two new dormitories had been constructed. The school continued to use the facilities of the former Mount Aetna Academy while the new campus was being completed. In 1975, the administration building , was opened. Four years later the gymnasium was built as a separate building.
The cafeteria-music building was added in 1986 and named I & E Barr Cafeteria Complex in 1993. In 1991 a library wing was added to the administration building which housed several classrooms and a computer lab. The Highland View Academy Church members moved into a new sanctuary on campus in 1993.
Highland View Academy's athletic teams, known as the Tartans, compete in baseball, basketball, soccer, and volleyball.
