Loma Linda Academy celebrates 100 years

People in a 100 formation
Approximately 1,500 students from Loma Linda Academy, a K-12 coeducational Seventh-day Adventist school, participated in celebrating the academy’s 100th anniversary on Friday, January 13. The students formed the numeral “100,” representing the 100 years of the academy’s existence. Loma Linda Academy, originally known as the Loma Linda Church School, opened its doors on January 13, 1906, in a tent pitched on the side of what was then known as “sanitarium hill” (where Nichol Hall is now located). Six students enrolled in the school the first year. The following year, enrollment doubled.

Loma Linda Academy is the largest academy in the North American Seventh-day Adventist educational system. To date, the school has graduated 5,440 students and has a college entrance rate of 99 percent.
