Academy Days 2024

Do you desire to grow spiritually?
Rio provides tons of opportunities.
Are academics your focus?
Rio’s got you covered.
Are you interested in art? 
Rio’s got that.
Do you want to grow athletically?
Rio will help you out.
Is leadership your goal? 
Yup, Rio’s got that, too!

Our campus and programs have so much to offer you but you have to come and experience them yourself.  Rio Lindo Adventist Academy’s annual and complimentary Academy Days is a chance for you to see what life on 365 acres of Northern California hill country can be like.  The safe and welcoming environment is sure to spark the possibilities within you.

PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS – You are unique and your education should reflect the distinctive person you are.  Rio Lindo has so much to offer you and we want you to experience it all.  Cozy up in the dorm, worship with us, attend a class, let our teachers and staff welcome you, nosh in our cafeteria, and laugh along with your friends at our Saturday night activity.  In short, try us on for size and see the ways Rio will celebrate the individual God made you to be. 

PARENTS – You are the real decision-makers in this high school education scenario, so we have a Rio Lindo Academy Days experience specially tailored to answer your questions, excite you about your child’s future, and affirm the call that God has placed on your heart for boarding school. You will meet our staff, observe our classes, encounter other parents wanting the same things as you, and hopefully start the application process. 

By attending this event, you get to save on tuition costs.  For attending, you receive a $250 credit towards your child’s tuition! If you start the application, the $75 application fee is waived.  But that is not all!  If you finish your child’s application by March 3, you will receive another $300 tuition discount!  All in total, you may be able to earn $625 towards next school’s year’s tuition.  

It is our biggest desire for you to know that boarding school IS an option — regardless of your financial situation. If God has called your family to attend Rio Lindo Adventist Academy, we WILL find a way to align with your financial investment in a Seventh-day Adventist education for your son or daughter! We know that sometimes an event like this is a big step out in faith and we want to encourage you to take it by registering for this event!

Academy Days dorm check-in is on Friday, February 23 at 4:00 pm, and the weekend event will end at 2:00 pm on Sunday. Local day students are also encouraged to attend throughout the weekend!  Please call or email us if you have questions:
