• Your teachers will contact you to provide an orientation for your class. Please be on the lookout for the email from your teachers.

No Tuition Increase 2020-2021

August 6, 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian:

I pray this email finds you and your loved ones in good health.

We know that many families have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Finance Committee of the Glendale Adventist Academy at their recent meeting voted to rescind the increase in tuition rates scheduled for the 2020-2021 school year. If you have made payments for the current school year based on the previous tuition rates, your student’s account will be credited for the difference.

The school’s revenue has also been significantly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The current tuition rate does not represent the full cost of education here at Glendale Adventist Academy. We urge you to consider making additional contributions that will be used to supplement the families that are unable to make full tuition payments. You can send a check to the School’s office or give online at You may also make a regular contribution each month when you are paying the tuition of your children or wards.

Thank you for your amazing support of Glendale Adventist Academy and of Christian education.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we come to the very last day of this school year, we the Administration, faculty, and staff of Glendale Adventist Academy would like to extend our profound gratitude, applause, and best wishes to you all for your unflinching support for the school during the most trying months of this school year. Covid-19 changed the way we did school, and you stood right beside us as we tried hard to navigate those stormy waters. Our students, your children or wards, also cooperated with the system and made it possible to get to this side of the story. We made it!

Due to CDC guidelines for schools regarding physical distancing to prevent the spread of Covid-19, we are developing a strategy that will be unfolded for implementation for the 2020/2021 school year. We are in the process of cost analysis and planning, and we will be sharing more details with you within the next few weeks.

Kindly mark Tuesday, August 18, on your calendar. That is our first day back to school for the 2020/2021 school year. It promises to be a grand opening after being gone for so long. We are counting on your continued support in recruiting new students and families to join the ranks of our elementary and high school programs.

Once again thank you for all your support and prayers. We wish you a pleasant and enjoyable summer break.

A Message From The Principal

$23,700 Raised in Two Weeks - 38 Students Receive Financial Aid to Stay in School

Dear Friend,

When the clarion call went out two weeks ago to assist families that have been impacted by Covid 19, you rose up to the occasion and gave. As we speak, 38 students who experienced one form of hardship or another have been able to receive some tuition assistance from the proceeds of the fundraiser. Thank you for your generous and sacrificial giving. One teacher donated the $1,200 stimulus package check to assist families in need. Other teachers and non-teaching staff members also gave generously. One parent donated two months of tuition payments in the amount of $1,200 to assist a needy student in their child’s classroom without knowing who in particular they were assisting. Another parent offered to give time to help the school take care of anything we needed to be done. Many of our alumni gave through the school website donation portal to support the cause. Friends of Glendale Adventist Academy came to our rescue. Everyone gave what they could to make it happen.

So where do we go from here? We are working on our plans for the next school year. Things will definitely be different from the way they are now. Physical distancing will continue and so will safe hygienic practices for the school as a whole. The wearing of face masks and temperature taking will become routine and class sizes will be reduced. We will keep you informed as plans develop.

Thank you for your consistent support for quality, Christ-centered education here at Glendale Adventist Academy where we put Christ in the hearts of our students. We appreciate you for partnering with us to make that an everyday reality.

Our God has promised to watch over us when we go through the fires of life or through stormy waters. Keep on trusting Him and keep on believing His word. We will survive these times and have reasons to celebrate on the other side. May God bless you richly.

Letter to Alumni, Friends, and Families

April 9, 2020

Dear Friends,
We are in the middle of the greatest battle yet known to contemporary times. Covid-19 is wreaking havoc on homes and whole countries as we speak, and Glendale Adventist Academy has not gone untouched, from the hospitalizations of family members to the deaths of some loved ones. However, we are grateful that our losses are contained. We have heard of some remarkable recoveries and outright healing of individuals who were hospitalized as a result of testing positive to Covid-19. For this, we are eternally grateful to God.

All told, the financial impact on the working families in our school community is leaving some wreckage in its trail. A number of parents have called to ask that their children be withdrawn from the school as a result of their inability to pay tuition along with other expenses. The school has offered to assist in the little ways we can by extending their payments over the summer months. This does not look like a solution for many who have lost their sources of income.

We are coming to you to appeal for financial assistance to support such families as they face these times. We are requesting that you come to our aid through your tax-deductible donations that will go directly to assist parents to meet their two remaining months of tuition payments. You may mail your checks to:
Glendale Adventist Academy
Attn: Treasurer
700 Kimlin Drive
Glendale CA 91206

Or call: (818)244-8761 8.00 AM to 4.00 PM Monday through Thursday & 8.00 to 2.00 PM Friday

You may also donate online through our website via PayPal and other payment methods at Look for the High School button and follow the prompts to the giving button.

Finally, we regret to announce that because of all the ongoing challenges with Covid-19, Alumni Homecoming and May Festival events are canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and will announce new plans as we get more clarity.

Thank you for your unwavering support for Glendale Adventist Academy.

Graduation 2020 Postponed

April 3, 2020

Dear GAA Family,

We recognize the importance of various landmarks in the lives of our students, and the graduation ceremony marks a significant point of affirmation of hard work and diligence in the life of every student. For that reason, a staff meeting was held on Thursday, April 2, 2020, to discuss the kindergarten, eighth grade, and high school graduations of our school. It was decided that due to the school closure extension announced to go until the end of the school year, graduations have been postponed until sometime in the summer or fall depending on the turn of events with Covid-19.

Kindly accept our heartfelt appreciation for your feelings of loss at the fact that your child/children who are supposed to graduate are not able to march on the designated days previously published on the school calendar. God is with us and He has a beautiful plan up His sleeves that will bring us all joy and a cause to celebrate.

It is my firm belief that Glendale Adventist Academy will become greater after Covid-19 than before. Let us trust for the best and know that for each of us, the best is yet to come. Let us keep praying for those who are hospitalized or have tested positive. We at GAA are praying for all parents who are frontline workers and asking God to protect you as you seek to save the lives of others.

Have a wonderful and restful Sabbath. Enjoy the weekend with fun activities and remember to send me some pictures of your fun times. My email is
