About Us

Mission Statement 

The Worthington Adventist Academy family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.


Our Philosophy 

The Worthington Adventist Academy is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to value labor, physical and mental, as they:

  • Develop a personal relationship with God and fellow humans as stated in Matthew 2:37-39,
  • Master the basic academic skills,
  • Cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.


Worthington Adventist Academy is accredited by the North American Division Commission on Education, the State of Ohio, and the National Council of Private Schools Accreditation. Our school is recognized for promoting and maintaining a well-balanced education program and for meeting or exceeding standards considered essential for quality education.
