Walla Walla Valley Academy

Walla Walla Valley Academy (WWVA) is a Seventh-day Adventist grade 9-12 school located in College Place, Washington. College Place is next to the larger town of Walla Walla and is in the Walla Walla Valley.

History

For 121 years, WWVA has had one purpose - to prepare students for the Second Coming of Christ by instilling in each a love for God, for learning, for life and for service. It has seen many changes since it opened in 1886 as Milton Academy. Originally the school was located in Milton-Freewater, Oregon, where the City Hall building is situated today. It was the first Seventh-day Adventist academy in the Pacific Northwest.

In 1892 Milton Academy joined Walla Walla College (now Walla Walla University) and was renamed Walla Walla College Academy. It academically separated from the college in 1935, was accredited by the State in 1937 and has remained so through the current year. When a new elementary school, Clara E. Rogers Elementary School was built in 1953, the academy moved to the old elementary school building. In 1964 another move brought the school to its current location and the academy became known as Walla Walla Valley Academy (WWVA). Throughout all the changes at the school, the mission has remained constant.

WWVA has several music groups suited to the varied musical interests of students. Among these groups are the Concert Band, Praise Ringers, String Orchestra, Choir, and WWVA Singers. These groups present programs for various church, civic, and school activities.
