Puget Sound Adventist Academy is a Seventh-day Adventist high school with grades ranging from 9 through 12. It is a part of the Seventh-day Adventist education system, the world's second largest Christian school system.[1][2][3] [4]Its extra-curricular activities focus on outreach and community service, but also include music instruction and performance, and athletic programs.[5]

Academics[edit]

The required curriculum includes classes in the following subject areas: Religion, English, Oral Communications, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, Physical Education, Health, Computer Applications, Fine Arts, and Electives.

Spiritual aspects[edit]

All students take religion classes each year that they are enrolled. These classes cover topics in biblical history and Christian and denominational doctrines. Instructors in other disciplines also begin each class period with prayer or a short devotional thought, many which encourage student input. Weekly, the entire student body gathers together in the auditorium for an hour-long chapel service. Outside the classrooms there is year-round spiritually oriented programming that relies on student involvement.
