Escondido Adventist Academy is a K-12 Seventh-day Adventist church-affiliated school which was established in 1903, and became a full Kindergarten – 12th grade program in 1983. It was the first private school in Escondido to offer Advanced Placement [AP] classes, and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Adventist Accrediting Association.

Escondido Adventist Academy offers its students a curriculum that is challenging in its content, relevant in its focus, and spiritually-rich in its purpose. The program offers solid core classes from the elementary grades to the high school, six AP courses, college-prep and an honors diploma. Through projects, presentations, labs, homework, and exams, teachers endeavor to help students reach their full potential. The school’s Core Values, the North American Division (NAD) curriculum frameworks, and the California state standards serve as the model for the curriculum. After school study labs are available to help students meet expectations.
