Maplewood Academy is a SDA Boarding school.
The school's history trace to 1888 when the Minnesota Conference of Seventh-day Adventists (SDA) opened the Minneapolis Preparatory School in the basement of the new Minneapolis SDA Church on the corner of 4th Avenue and Lake Street. In August 1889, The Minnesota Conference Committee decided the school needed to be expanded, so the school moved to a rented three-story hotel on Main and Ferry Streets in Anoka, Minnesota. In 1904, a 94-acre farm near Maple Plain, Minnesota, was purchased as the site for the Minnesota Industrial School. The move of the school to this beautiful location also brought a name change. Maplewood Academy began in 1904 with seven faculty members and 57 students in attendance.
