PHAA, a co-ed Adventist school, offers a complete, accredited education for any age. With an elementary, middle school, and high school, PHAA has the educational needs to fit any family. Students come from all parts of the Bay Area and surrounding cities, creating a dedicated school family.‚Äč

Adventist education is driven by a philosophy outlined in Journey to Excellence which fosters a balanced development of the whole person—physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. 

Pleasant Hill Adventist Academy is situated in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area, easily reached by students from Contra Costa, Solano, Alameda, and Napa Counties. The combination of the surrounding city and peaceful campus makes this school ideal for all levels of education.

School History
Pleasant Hill Adventist Academy was established in 1952 as Pleasant Hill Junior Academy. It became Pleasant Hill Christian School when it became a 12 grade school in 1998. Becoming operationally independent and fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges in 2003, it changed its name to Pleasant Hill Adventist Academy. It is a part of the Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists educational system.

College Preparation
Quality education is the goal at PHAA. Students receive a WASC-accredited education from kindergarten to senior graduation. Two diplomas are offered, standard and college-preparatory. PHAA works hand-in-hand with the Adventist colleges to guarantee college success.

Pleasant Hill Adventist Academy is fully accredited with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. We are also approved by the Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges and Universities, which is recognized by the National Council for Private School Accreditation.
