Great Lakes Adventist Academy (GLAA) is a co-educational Seventh-day Adventist secondary boarding school located in Cedar Lake, Michigan, United States.

Academics

Great Lakes Adventist Academy is a private, four-year, coeducational secondary school owned and operated by the Michigan Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Over 90% of Great Lake Adventist Academy (GLAA) students are accepted to colleges and universities. It is fully accredited as a senior high school with the Board of Regents of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. It was named the 2007 Seventh-day Adventist Academy of Excellence by The Alumni Awards Foundation.[1]

GLAA, situated on a 400-acre (1.6 km2) campus in rural Cedar Lake, Michigan, serves approximately 200 students. As a Christian school, GLAA admits students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to the student body. No discrimination is made on the basis of race in administration of educational policies, applications for admission, scholarship or loan programs, athletic or extra-curricular programs.

History

The school was started in the early 1900s but was renamed during the 1980s to its current name. On November 2, 1986, Adelphian Academy and Cedar Lake Academy merged to form Great Lakes Adventist Academy. Prior to that, Grand Ledge Academy consolidated with Lansing Elementary School and Grand Ledge Elementary School in 1982. It then became Mid-Michigan Adventist Academy until 1989, when it was also merged into Great Lakes Adventist Academy. This left only two Adventist Academies in Michigan: Great Lakes Adventist Academy in Cedar Lake and Andrews Academy in Berrien Springs.

Facilities

The school recently opened a fairly modern gymnasium. The school also has two dorm buildings for each boys and girls. Other installations are also available to host other services like the plant services department, the Ad. Building that hosts the administrative offices, classrooms and Chapel/auditorium.
