The Hartford Adventist Academy was founded in 1982 with one principal/teacher and nine students. Today, the school houses nearly 100 students in a spacious new facility in Hartford's north end.
Situated in an urban area, the school attracts students from various backgrounds and cultures. Encouraging students to develop tolerance and appreciation for different perspectives is an educational goal, which HAA meets through its very composition.
The staff and students work together to provide an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding. On a day to day basis all are treated with Christian love and respect. In addition to the overall atmosphere, specific programs are designed to encourage involvement and development of students academically, physically and spiritually.
Adventist EducationThe Seventh-day Adventist educational system includes elementary and high schools, colleges and universities in countries around the globe. We invite you to hear from administrators, teachers, parents and students about the quality academics, strong curriculum and integrated spiritual and moral content of our school.
The Hartford Adventist Academy family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.
The Hartford 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:
- develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
- master the basic academic skills
- value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended
- cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.
The Hartford Adventist Academy is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
