Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2008
When the Los Angeles Adventist Academy (LAAA) opened its doors for the 2008-2009 school year recently, it initiated the Christian school's 85th year of educating K-12 students. It did so with a six-year accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Los Angeles Adventist Academy students and their parents prize their school's accreditation, which is required for entrance to universities and colleges. Some 85% of the school's graduates go on to college.
The academy is located at 846 E. El Segundo Blvd. in Los Angeles, located closest to the Compton, Gardena, Hawthorne, Lynwood, Torrance and Watts communities. LAAA also has a pre-school, which meets from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursdays, closing earlier on Fridays. It meets year round.
"It is gratifying when our school, after doing the Focus on Learning Self Study and having a visit from the WASC Accreditation Committee, received a six-year term of WASC accreditation," said Lorenzo Paytee, principal. "This accreditation validates the fine work of our experienced Christian educators and extends the academic future of the academy through 2014.
