A Message from Our Principal

On behalf of our faculty and staff, please accept my warm welcome to Memphis Adventist Academy (MAA). More than ever before, we recognize the importance of our children getting a solid educational foundation under the care and nurture of God-fearing teachers. We strive to be the premier school for a Christ-centered, growth-focused, holistic, college-and-career-ready education that prepares a diverse student population for a saving relationship with Christ, and service to humanity. With the aid of 21st century technology, an equipped science lab, various school clubs, and character education, we endeavor to actualize each child’s potential while working closely with parents, pastors, constituency, and community partners.. 
This year’s theme is “Be Bold”, and it could not be more fitting as we enter the second year of the coming together of Memphis Junior Academy and Greater Memphis Adventist Academy. With this partnership, our students get the opportunity to be in one building, learn one curriculum, taught by one faculty, and loved by one church community. The bible verse that goes along with our theme is Joshua 1:9, "Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
We remain 'boldly' committed to educating students for college, career, life, and eternity.
Sincerely,Fabian S. Reid, MAA Principal



Children in U.S. Adventist schools achieve on average half a grade higher than the national average, and beyond their own predicted ability. This is evidence by a recent CongnitiveGenesis study reported in the Christian Science Monitor. Children in Adventist schools make better moral decisions, as shown by ValueGenesis, an earlier study.

  • I have not heard much about Seventh-day Adventist schools. Are there many schools, or only a few?

    The Adventist Church is associated with over 7,000 educational institutions operating in over 100 countries around the world with over 1.5 million students worldwide. 

  • Does my family have to be Adventist for my child to attend an Adventist school?

    Absolutely not, though you and your child will gain the most benefit from Adventist education if you are a Christian or at least sympathetic with Christian beliefs.

  • Will an Adventist school try to turn my child into a Seventh-day Adventist?

    At an Adventist school, students’ freedom to think for themselves is respected and nurtured, and students are encouraged to learn how to make good moral decisions regardless of their creed or belief system. One key Adventist principle is that no one should be pressured into church membership, but join willingly as they choose. Children of Adventist parents become baptized members only when they are old enough to make the decision consciously and responsibly.

  • Are Adventist schools accredited? Do they provide as complete an education as other public or private schools?

    Every Adventist school is accredited by a state or national accrediting body. In addition, the church office of education also operates a comprehensive accrediting process to maintain a high standard of excellence in all Adventist schools. If you’re interested in a particular Adventist school, feel free to contact that school and ask to be put in touch with students and parents who attend that school to get a sense of what the education is like. We think you’ll find, as an ongoing study is finding, that on average Adventist schools are better places to learn than any other.


Memphis Jr Academy (now doing business as Memphis Adventist Academy) is accredited by two associations: Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges and the Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, a member of the National Council for Private School Accreditation. The school is also registered with the State of Tennessee.
