DAA is a co-educational high school, grades 9-12, located just 14 miles north of Bismarck, North Dakota. The 22-acre campus is located on a slight rise on more than 1,000 acres of beautiful, rolling North Dakota landscape on the Missouri River. Located on the historic Lewis and Clark Trail, sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking here. The air is crisp and there is a feeling of safety and security on the campus.

Young People find DAA offers So Much More
- Some have felt lost or insignificant in large, public school settings.
- Others, concerned about getting a high-quality education, have found the small student-teacher ratio and plentiful tutoring provide a more concentrated focus on their education.
- Some wish to be in an environment where many of the negative things of daily life aren’t constantly challenging them.
Students and their families have found DAA to be more than just a school. If one of these statements ring true to you, think seriously about DAA.
Dakota Adventist Academy is a Christian high school that welcomes students of all faiths and backgrounds. DAA has many Christian-centered activities to help students learn and grow in their faith. By participating in these various activities and programs, students learn how to be better Christians and active participants in their own spiritual lives in their communities.
DAA is proud to offer students the opportunity to learn and grow in their Spiritual faith, becoming happy Christian young men and women, preparing them for their futures. Walking down the hallways you can easily recognize the positive attitudes, the sense of purpose, and the focus on friendship, faith, and mutual respect.
Well Established and Respected
Serving both North Dakota and South Dakota, DAA roots and history go all the way back to 1902 (Redfield, South Dakota) and 1904 (Harvey, North Dakota). DAA, combined the best of both schools into one, opening its new campus at its present location in 1977.
The campus is spacious, warm, and student-friendly in many ways. While most students take advantage of the boarding opportunity, boarding on campus is not required for those who live close enough to commute.
Those who do live at DAA have their own dormitory rooms, with a shared bathroom between every two rooms. Some students live in well-appointed dorm rooms during the week, going home many weekends. Some travel short distances daily to the Academy to attend classes and participate in sports, clubs, and organizations. We’ve also been fortunate to have many fine International students become part of the DAA family over the years.
Along with the above for-credit opportunities, students are invited to become a part of the weekly worship music team(s) that support our worship services, assembly programs, chapel experiences and other gatherings.
