NDAA began its education ministry, 30 years ago this year, as the Richardson Adventist School (RAS). The one room schoolhouse was housed adjacent to the fellowship hall with just a handful of students. God honored the dedication of early patriarchs and matriarchs like Mrs. Olivares. With the help of committed supporters of the Richardson Seventh-day Adventist Church, the school grew to become the church’s single largest ministry.
As God continued to bless RAS, the school eventually outgrew the church campus with 140 students in pre-kindergarten through 10th grade. Both 11th and 12th grades were added, along with a vibrant international student program, and in 2007 God led Pastor Paul Hunt to our current ten-acre property. With buildings requiring only minor adjustments to meet the school’s basic operational needs, North Dallas Adventist Academy officially opened in August 2008. Today, North Dallas Adventist Academy continues to operate under full academy status and is blessed to have reached an all time enrollment high of 305 students.
We thank God for continuing to bless this ministry and are looking forward to our next phase of growth. We invite you and your student to become part of our growing family!
