Lake View Academy (or LVA) is a complete secondary boarding school operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It is situated in the midst of the rural area Don Carlos in Bukidnon, Philippines. It had an enrolment of 250 students during the year between 2007–2008.
Lake View Academy is a boarding school operated by the Northern Mindanao Conference of Seventh-day Adventists to fill the need of its constituents for Adventist education in the secondary level. It was established in 1967 by the Northern Mindanao Mission to serve the whole of its constituents, and named Lake View Academy. It opened on June 1967 with seven (7) teachers including the principal, Pastor Serafin F. Fadre. It catered to one hundred forty one (141) initial batches of students in the first and second year alone. The first graduation was in 1971.
Situated in the one (1) hectare lot along the national highway of Don Carlos, Bukidnon, which was acquired through the efforts and negotiations made by the Mission Committee headed by Pastor Teofilo Layon, Northern Mindanao Mission president, and chairman of the Academy Board.
During the pioneering stage, the students were accommodated in temporary shacks while the construction of the dormitories was done. Besides the contracted carpenters, students were employed in the construction and also in developing the school farm which also helped finance their schooling. Being the younger of the two academies, (the other is Mindanao Mission Academy) which are operated by the Northern Mindanao Conference, the needs were enormous. The Union assisted financially in the surveying, processing of the documents and notarial fees of the school property, leaving the Northern Mindanao Conference to fill up the other needs such as the installation of water pump and generator, costs for the dormitories, trays, forks and spoons for the cafeteria, typewriters, adding machines, and a mimeographing machine.
