Loma Linda Academy Reviews

Loma Linda Academy was a good school for fostering a strong spiritual life, and bonding with peers. The school itself doesn't provide the best academic support, as they don't offer the same amount of AP courses like other high schools, and their arts department is a bit limited to only band and choir. They have extra curricular activities for sports, and all of the extra curricular activities even go out of state for competitions and touring. When it comes to college readiness, my experience wasn't as positive as I'd hoped, as most of the universities that were promoted for us were affiliated with the religion the school was apart of. Not a lot of emphasis was put on any of the benefits public universities have to offer, which is a disadvantage. The teachers themselves were good instructors, and if there are any complaints, its only about a choice few; definitely not the majority. My overall experience was a generally positive one, but I believe it could've been better.

I have attended Loma Linda Academy for twelve years–this is my thirteenth. LLA is a perfect environment for religious growth (it is Seventh Day Adventist). The religious aspect holds true throughout each of the three campuses, with Campus Ministries working at most functions to create a spiritually-fulfilling atmosphere. LLA's staff truly cares about you and most teachers will go out of their way to help a student. Within junior high and high school, LLA offers sports like flag football, basketball, soccer, swimming, badminton, etc. There's also high school clubs like Reality Check (drama), Youth-to-Youth (community service), and Shades Club (culture). My experience with LLA will be appreciated throughout the rest of my life.
I enjoyed my time at Loma Linda Academy and I fee like it prepared me well academically. It is a small school and there are not very many students in each graduating class and so the teachers were able to devote more time to each student and help them personally succeed in every class. I enjoyed the environment where everyone respected each other and wanted each other to do well. It was easy to talk to the teachers and ask them for more help. I also enjoyed that there were many events for the students to participate in including week of prayers, bible camp, senior havasu trip, beach vespers, picnic day and much more. I believe that there were many opportunities for students to have fun and get involved including playing sports and joining clubs.
