MISSION & VISION

Preparing children for growth beyond grades in a traditional, Christ-centered environment designed to foster academic excellence and personal spiritual growth by putting God first. With its inclusive, nurturing approach, Greater Boston Academy helps students experience vital Christian values in action every day and equips them for a future lived with intention.

PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION

Greater Boston Academy was founded and operates upon the belief that God created humanity to enjoy continuous development of the mental, physical, spiritual and social powers, and that the Creator is vitally interested in the destiny of all people. This institution accepts as true the Biblical record of creation, the account of the fall of man, and the subsequent plan of redemption.

ACCREDITATION

We are accredited by the Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges and Universities
and Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY

Greater Boston Academy is a Seventh-day Adventist Christian School, situated in a residential community in the town of Stoneham. GBA has a diverse student population varying in economic, ethnic, geographic, and religious backgrounds. Situated between the urban and the rural, the school attracts students from many areas. Both students and faculty enjoy the mixture of cultures and backgrounds. Encouraging students to develop tolerance and appreciation for a different point of view is an educational goal that GBA meets through its diversity.

 

There are many characteristics that make this PreS-12 school a special place. The first of these is the spiritual environment and atmosphere of the campus. Together the staff and students work to provide an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding. It is important on a day-to-day basis that each be treated with Christian love and respect. In addition, specific programs are designed to encourage involvement in such things as community service, youth church, and mission trips.

 

FACILITIES

Greater Boston Academy campus is situated on 4 acres of land in a quiet residential area of Stoneham, MA. We currently have one main building, one modular building, a large playground area and a small playing field.

 

We are currently in the early planning phase of a $2 million dollar capital campaign to add a new addition (serving the high school), state of the art science lab, a full cafeteria, and expand our gymnasium to full size to accommodate our high school athletics programs.
