Glenview's History

Glenview Adventist Academy was founded in 1936 by members of the Glendale Seventh-Day Adventist Church.

The school was first built in a frame wing at the rear of the Church, which was located at 127 North Third Avenue at the time.  James Attarian was the first teacher and was paid $10.00 a week and boarded himself.

In 1959 the school building was moved from North Third Avenue to its present loation at 6801 N. 43rd Avenue.  The first section of the present school was built in 1956-1959 with Brother Charles Jordan overseeing the construction.  All labor was donated.

In 1960 the Auditorium was built and used as a Church until the current Church building was built.  Later, in 1964, the second section of the school was built.

Mission Statement

Glenview Adventist Academy is founded on the belief that God has a special purpose for each one of us.  Glenview sets out to help each student develop their mind and their talents through academic excellence and the study of the Bible as they discover their maximum potential and learn to know God better.

The education offered at Glenview focuses on all aspects of a student's growth.  The students learn self-discipline and the virtues of leadership, and receive the academic training that will prepare them for success in high school, college, and life.

Each faculty and staff member is personally interested in the success of each student and committed to providing an education and environment that will allow them to grow physically, mentally and spiritually.

Our Philosophy

Glenview Adventist Academy is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:

  • develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39;
  • master the basic academic skills;
  • value labor, physical and mental, as the blessing God intended; and 
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.  

The Glenview Adventist Academy is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
