Principal’s Welcome

sArizagaRo It is my pleasure to welcome you to North Dallas Adventist Academy (NDAA).  We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit our website.  Our hope is that you find our website to be user-friendly and after your visit, you will have a good idea of all we have to offer. The development of the physical, mental, social and spiritual areas of each of our students is of the utmost importance at NDAA.  We recognize that doing so is only possible through a strong partnership with parents, local community, and constituent church members.  We remain thankful for the support of people like you.

~ Rosy Arizaga, Lower School Principal

Lower School Academic Program

The NDAA Lower School division serves our 4-year-olds through 5th grade student population.  The Lower School faculty creates a nurturing environment where where students and faculty form a mutual relationship of trust and respect.  While the school year includes many fun in-class and extracurricular activities, the time spent on campus primarily focuses on academic growth through holistic development of mental, physical, social, and spiritual health through our Kinder Literacy Program and our Elementary School Program.

Kinder Literacy Program

The NDAA Kinder Literacy Program is divided into three levels:

  • Early Literacy (must be 4 years old by September 1st)
  • Reading Readiness (must be 5 years old by September 1st)
  • Accelerated Reader (must be 5 years old by September 1st)

Every student entering the program will be assessed to determine their appropriate placement level.  This ensures that every student will be learning at their own level and thus maximizing their learning experience.  For more information, see the NDAA Kinder Literacy Fact Sheet.
