Our History

In the spring of 1997, two women envisioned a Christian school that would provide children with individualized instruction in a small classroom environment. The school would incorporate innovative curriculum techniques, fine arts, etiquette instruction, and high behavioral standards to create a learning experience that children would never forget. 

Through answered prayers and hard work, Olney Adventist Preparatory School opened in the fall of 1997 with two multi-age classrooms and three teachers. Over the years, our school has expanded to eight classrooms with students in Kindergarten through eighth grade.

In response to this tremendous growth, we are committed to a strategic development plan. This includes a Kindergarten through eighth grade school with single and multi-grade classrooms that enhance the needs of both an elementary and middle school program.

We are accredited through the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges. We hold a certificate of accreditation through the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists.

"We go above and beyond in treating children as individuals

academically, spiritually, socially, and physically."
