I can tell you from my experience, Loma Linda Academy will offer your child a well-rounded education.
I was involved in two sports this year, cross country and basketball, and both helped me to connect with different types of people and find so many new friends! I’ve also found a deeper connectionwith God this year through our Friday chapels and student speakers.
All the students and teachers have created such a welcoming environment that has helped me make some amazing friendships!
