Milo Adventist Academy is a private Adventist high school in the rural unincorporated community of Milo, Oregon, United States. It is a part of the Seventh-day Adventist education system, the world's second largest Christian school system.[5][6][7] [8]As Milo no longer has a post office, Milo Academy has a Days Creek mailing address. The only access to the school's campus is by the historical Milo Academy Bridge.

The school has been accredited by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools since 1964,[4] and is known for its horse program.[9]


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.
