Student Handbook

The faculty and staff of Escondido Adventist Academy are dedicated to providing a Christ-centered environment in which to educate the Head, the Hand, and the Heart.  If this is your goal too…

Welcome to the EAA family!


Escondido Adventist Academy was established in 1903 as an elementary school, moved to Ninth Avenue in 1956, became a junior academy (K-10) shortly thereafter, then graduated its first high school class in 1983.  In the Fall of 2008, EAA moved to its present location on Deodar Road. It is operated by a school board which represents the fourteen Seventh-day Adventist churches in San Diego’s North County.  EAA is a part of the Southeastern California Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist School System.  The school is accredited by the Adventist Accrediting Association (AAA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).


Philosophy of Adventist Education:


The Seventh-day Adventist Church recognizes God as the ultimate source of existence and truth.  In the beginning God created in His image a perfect humanity, a perfection later marred by sin.  Through Christ and His Spirit, God determined to restore humanity from its lost state.  Through the Bible, He has revealed His will to the world, a revelation that supersedes human reason.  Through His Church on earth, He seeks the lost for His kingdom.


The basic tenets of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are directed toward God’s restorative plan for fallen humanity.  The SDA Church has its own system of education to foster students’ personal relationship with Jesus Christ through exposure to these tenets, and to instill in each student with a desire to share that relationship with others.


Message to Parents:


The successful operation of the school is a responsibility shared by the School Board, Administration, Faculty, Parents, and Students.  The Faculty and School Board invite parents to become acquainted with the lifestyle commitment and encourage them to apply these Christian ideals. It is imperative that all parents and guardians read EAA’s entire Student & Parent Handbook and agree to uphold and promote the principles stated therein.


By registering at EAA, the students and their parents or guardians agree to abide by the judgment of the School Board, Administration, and Faculty as it applies to standards of behavior, dress, and discipline.  Enrollment implies an obligation to meet on time the financial responsibilities that accrue out of tuition, fees, and other applicable charges approved by the School Board.
