Visit LLA!

Loma Linda Academy is a Children’s Center through 12th grade Seventh-day Adventist community of learning providing quality Christian education since 1906. We have come a long way from our humble beginnings and are proud to offer college preparatory curriculum, excellent facilities, and the latest technology. However, our mission remains the same: to provide a Christ-centered and nurturing environment to prepare students spiritually, academically, physically and socially for higher education, for life in a global society and for eternity. 

Loma Linda Academy is honored to have 11 National Merit Finalists over the past 10 years and 40 commended students in the National Merit Scholarship competition.

" LLA has the values that I was looking for my son: respect, trust, building self-esteem... but most of all I value the love of Jesus Christ that my son has learned day by day."
