The academy is part of the Seventh-day Adventist school system, the second largest school system in the world. Central to our core philosophy is the understanding that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of true knowledge. Therefore, a biblical worldview is the bedrock upon which all subjects are taught. With a firm commitment to the holistic development of each and every student, the school has grown to become one of the largest Adventist academies in the DFW metroplex. NDAA continues its firm commitment to the concept of providing each student with a holistic education of mental, physical, social, and spiritual health. NDAA staff and faculty mentor students, both inside and outside of the classroom, to excel at intellectual growth and service to humanity.
