Welcome to Paradise Adventist Academy


In my view, one of the most breathtaking revelations to mankind is found in John 15 where God, in the person of Jesus, reveals that He wants to be in a friendship relationship with each of us. When I couple Jesus’ invitation to friendship with His promise in Matthew 6:33, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God…and all these things will be added unto you,” I gain a clear vision regarding the best course for Paradise Adventist Academy.


It is clear that we are striving for academic excellence at PAA. However, even though academic excellence is a high priority, it is not our highest priority. What we value most is to be in a friendship relationship with Jesus. We are seeking first the kingdom of God. As evidenced by the high standardized test scores of our students and their success as they continue on to college, it is clear that academic excellence is one of “these things” that is being “added unto us” while we seek His kingdom.


To all who would like to join us as we seek His kingdom and receive all “these things”, we at Paradise Adventist Academy would like to extend a hearty welcome.
