Mountain View Academy is a Seventh-day Adventist secondary school (grades 9-12) located in Mountain View, California. It is part of the Seventh-day Adventist education system, the world's second largest Christian school system.

Description[edit]

Mountain View Academy (MVA) is located on a plot of 3 acres (1.2 ha) near downtown Mountain View between Shoreline Blvd, Dana St, California Avenue, and Mountain View Avenue. The campus is comprised of a gymnasium, classrooms, and housing for faculty and staff.[2][3]

MVA is a co-educational Christian highschool for day students. The program is college preparatory. It is part of a network of more than 5,000 educational facilities, and it is owned and operated by the Central California Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church,[1] .

History[edit]

In 1904, the Pacific Press Publishing Association, a Seventh-day Adventist institution, relocated from Oakland, California to Mountain View. The Mountain View town leaders wished to raise the town's status in the state, and in light of the recent opening of Stanford University in the neighboring city of Palo Alto, Mountain View leaders sought to attract "an institution of fine qualities" to settle in what was then a town of 800 people.[4]. The city offered a grant of 5 acres (2.0 ha) of land, and a a pair of lots for a church or meeting house. The Press accepted the offer, and moved to Mountain View. Along with the plant came the workers and about 100 families, who built many of the original homes in the neighborhood around the Pacific Press.[5] For about 50 years, the Press was the largest employer in the town of Mountain View.[6]

In 1907, the Seventh-day Adventists built the Mountain View Seventh-day Adventist Church on the corner of West Dana Street and Bailey Avenue (now Shoreline Boulevard). Around the same time, a small elementary school was also constructed. As the students began to graduate, there was an increased need for a secondary school for these graduates. The Mountain View Academy was established in 1922.[7]

The academy and the school operated on the same property until 1967, when the church moved to a new location on Springer Road.[8]

Athletics[edit]

Mountain View Academy is a member of the Private School Athletic League, under the Central Coast Section of the California Interscholastic Federation.[9]

Accreditation[edit]

MVA offers a 4 year educational program that complies with the Educational Code of the State of California and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Adventist Accrediting Association[10]
