Preparing. Building. Educating for Christ.

About Us

Our Mission

Emma L. Minnis Junior Academy is a PreK to Grade 8 historic Seventh-day Adventist education institution, providing a Christian learning environment where all students prepare and develop the physical, mental and spiritual growth for this world and the world to come.


Our Philosophy

Emma L. Minnis Junior Academy has been established to provide a Christian learning environment for students, with responsibilities to guide each student in developing meaningful relationships with God, country, community, and family.

Adventist education imparts more than academic knowledge.  It fosters a balanced development of the whole person—spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially.  Its time dimensions span eternity.  It seeks to develop a life of faith in God and respect for the dignity of all human beings; to build character akin to that of the Creator, to nurture thinkers rather than mere reflectors of others’ thoughts; to promote loving service rather than selfish ambition; to ensure maximum development of each individual’s potential; and to embrace all that is true, good, and beautiful.
