IAA places a high value on structuring its academic programs so that every student can be successful. Small class sizes, multi-grade settings, and individual tutoring are all possible at our school. We offer a challenging curriculum that can be altered to meet the needs of varying students.
IAA is accredited by the North Central Accrediting Association (NCAA), as well as the Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, which is a member of the National Council for Private School Accreditation.
IAA believes that making strong leaders is essential to the future of the church and our country. Leadership skills are developed through peer-to-peer learning/tutoring in the classroom and opportunities to lead out in school and church programs.
CHERISH: “To acquire wisdom is to love oneself; people who cherish understanding will prosper.” Proverbs 19:8
CHERISH is an acronym that expresses the core of the Adventist school’s mission.
Outreach and Service Opportunities
Because of our strong belief that Christ expects us to care for each other, we place a strong emphasis on teaching students to serve one another and the world around them. We encourage them to look for opportunities to be servant-leaders in the classroom and in all walks of life.
Extra-curricular Activities and Enrichment Classes
We at IAA want to help students to develop skills in many areas of life. Exposure to different activities and environments also helps students to start thinking about future career possibilities. Classes vary from year-to-year.
Knowing that a healthy body has a huge impact on learning and success, the staff and volunteers at IAA believe that we should teach and promote a healthy lifestyle. Some facets of our program that show this are:
Spiritual Growth Opportunities
One of our main goals is to prepare students for the future in Heaven. We provide many opportunities for growth that are woven into our daily schedule. Some of these include daily classroom worships, a weekly whole-school chapel program, Bible class as part of the curriculum, Week-of-Prayer, and opportunities for witnessing.
