Loma Linda Academy (LLA) is a Seventh-day Adventist K-12 college preparatory WASC-accredited school[4] in Loma Linda, California, United States. Loma Linda Academy comprises three separate, semi-autonomous schools: Loma Linda Elementary (LLE), an elementary school; Loma Linda Academy Junior High, a junior high school; and Loma Linda Academy, a high school. Each school has its own principal. The school was founded June 13, 1906,[2] with six students, barely a year after Ellen White had encouraged the fledgling church to establish a church and sanitarium there.[6]


Loma Linda Elementary includes kindergarten through sixth grade. The principal is John Chen.[7]

Junior high[edit]

Loma Linda Academy Junior High comprises seventh and eighth grades. The principal is Gordon Day.[8]

High school[edit]

Loma Linda Academy includes ninth through twelfth grades. The principal is Robert Skoretz.[9] The high school has an attendance of more than 450 students. The High School has an extremely high college bound rate, with 99% of its students enrolling in college after graduation.[10] Of those that attend college, 75% attend a four-year university, while the other 24% attend a two-year college.
