Our goal is to make Jesus Christ the focus of our school and lead each of our students to an eternal friendship with the Savior. Our distinctive Adventist education is based on the Bible and the writings of Ellen G. White. Seventh-day Adventists operate over 1000 schools in the United States and more than 80,000 students are enrolled in Adventist Education.
MWA is a school rich in diversity. Our students come from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. They blend together in classrooms and in work and in play. We view this as a small preview of heaven. We also value nature as God’s second book and we look for ways to get our students outside in the beautiful state of Minnesota.
Thanks again for visiting our website. Please feel free to look around and please call us if you have questions. We would be happy to tell you more about what a special place MWA is for young people.
