Mount Ellis Academy Mission & Vision Statements:


Mount Ellis Academy, a Seventh-day Adventist High School, is open to students from all faiths. As a Christ-following community we seek to help students: 

  • Discover the reality of their Creator
  • Develop their God-given gifts
  • Serve in His Kingdom


To follow the Lamb wherever He goes.

The ASSIST Program

Mount Ellis Academy, in partnership with Southern Adventist University’s ASSIST grant program, has the opportunity to offer unique tuition assistance to our students. Through this service-oriented program, our participating students are paired with elderly adults in our community in a mutually-beneficial way. 

Students in the ASSIST program provide help to senior citizens by performing light housecleaning and/or yard work. They also have fun with their elderly friends through activities such as visiting, reading, and playing games. As the young people build generational bridges, they also benefit from the wisdom and mentorship of the older adults. In the process, their time together helps finance the student’s Christian education.

Not only are these students developing skills needed to be successful — commitment, leadership, communication and interpersonal skills, empathy, and collaboration — they are also learning the value of service.

Adventist Education

As a Seventh-day Adventist school, Mount Ellis Academy has the strength of the world’s second largest parochial school system behind it.  The entire organization is absolutely committed to providing the very best in curriculum, instruction, and spiritual nurturing in the context of a Biblical world view.

We believe that the Creator’s design is for “whole person” development — mental, physical, and spiritual — and that no matter what your religion or philosophy of life, an Adventist school education can help your child make better moral decisions and grow up to become a trustworthy community leader.  

— Mission statement of the Seventh-day Adventist North American Division Department of Education

“At Mount Ellis Academy students are free to explore their faith in the context of a Biblical community.  Teachers, students, and staff become part of the journey. Our goal is to know our Creator more intimately, to be transformed into His likeness, to follow His leading, and to represent His love to the world.”
