Admissions

Adventist School Students in Canada score half a grade level higher than the national norm.

Thank you for your interest in Red River Valley Junior Academy. Because of the importance we place on small class sizes, admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. To increase the chances of acceptance, early application is strongly suggested.

Getting Started

Deciding on the right school for your child is an important step in their development. We invite you to peruse our site to determine if Red River Valley Junior Academy is the best fit for you and your child. We welcome to our school family any student who wishes to obtain a quality education in a Christian environment and who is committed to upholding the rules and philosophy of the Academy. The Academy does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national and/or ethnic origin in its admission process. All are welcomed and encouraged to apply.

Admission Process The admission process begins by completing an Application Brochure and submitting it along with a $50.00 non-refundable registration fee. Applications are then reviewed by an admissions committee. The School Board will decide on all special cases and conditions for admission to the School.
