Dakota Adventist® Academy

Building friendships for eternity.

“To increase in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man”

We follow Jesus’ example by nurturing each child’s growth as a whole person: academically, physically, spiritually and socially.

Growing spiritually

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever! Amen. 2 Peter 3:18

Growing academically

If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you. - Zig Ziglar

Growing physically

By active exercise in the open air every day the liver, kidneys, and lungs also will be strengthened to perform their work. - Ellen G. White

Growing socially

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Philippians 2:4

DAA's Facebook Page

High school should be full of learning, fun, friendship, and new experiences. At Dakota Adventist Academy, we have you covered.
DAA is a Seventh-day Adventist Christian high school that welcomes students of all faiths and backgrounds.  Because DAA is a boarding school, our students get to live on campus with their friends. That makes for closer friendships and a more inclusive education. We are an accredited high school, so academics are important to us.  With our goal of academic excellence, our graduates are qualified to succeed in college and career. Featuring advanced, vocational, and fine arts courses and programs, our students are only limited by their imagination. It's an experience like no other. 
Our campus sits just outside of Bismarck, North Dakota, surrounded by the history and beauty of the Lewis and Clark Trail and the Missouri River. We have lots of room to spread our wings here—over 1,000 acres of rolling green hills to call home. We are proud of our beautiful campus, which features a spacious gym, well-maintained ball fields, dormitories, modern classrooms, on-campus horse barn, and a lot of space to learn and play.
Want to learn more about DAA and find out what makes our school special? Start by exploring our website. See what's happening, look at our calendar, browse our photos, check out our blog, and get a feel for who we are. Then contact us to schedule a visit so you can see for yourself.
Welcome to Dakota Adventist Academy. We're building friendships for eternity, and we're glad you're part of our school family.


I absolutely loved this school. The teachers are all super friendly and they care about you! By the end of the school year it feels like one big, happy family and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end high school.
