The Dream is a Reality oving into a beautiful, new building is so exciting! Although the journey was long and many in the community worked and waited for nearly 12 years, the Lord quietly worked through the delays and discouragements. Spencerville church members, through sacrificial giving and a vision for the future, made this dream a reality. We are so grateful for their dedication and sacrifice! Spencerville Adventist Academy (SAA) is now a state-ofthe-art, 100,000 square-foot, pre-K through 12th grade educational facility with capacity for 450 students. Though the building is beautiful, none of it would matter if it were not filled with Christ-centered teachers and administrators. Each day that students enter this building, they will encounter Christ. He will be revealed in the curriculum, students, teachers and hallways. The world is pulling our students away from Christ, Brian Kittleson but at SAA, it is our goal that each student will “Love to Learn, Live to Serve, All for Christ.” Principal
Principal Brian Kittleson is excited for students to learn in the fully equipped high school science lab. Additionally, there are two computer labs in the building, and each spacious classroom has a SMART Board and student computers.
There is a courtyard in the center of the building where students can sit and be surrounded by the beauty of nature.
The large gymnasium comes equipped with expandable bleachers for athletic events. Additional gym space is available in the nearby multipurpose room. SAA’s new Cisco Wi-Fi infrastructure is designed to support every person in the building with room for expansion. The beautiful performing arts auditorium has a state-of-the-art sound system, elevated stage and an orchestra pit. Spiritual programming; band, bell and choir performances; as well as the yearly musical drama performances will take place here.
