Mission Statement
The mission of Meadow View Junior Academy is to provide quality education in a Christian atmosphere. It is our goal to teach each student the skills needed to excel in their future education while learning the principles for using this knowledge in a life of unselfish Christian service.

Philosophy
The staff of Meadow View Junior Academy is dedicated to the preparation of young people for unselfish service to God and their fellow man. The basic aim of this school is the promotion of physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth.

It is the purpose of the school to provide a climate in which a healthy self-image may be developed. Students are taught to think for themselves and to make decisions that are beneficial to God, their fellow man, and themselves.

We adhere to the philosophy that "true education means more than the pursuit of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental and spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come." E.G. White, Education, page 13.


Objectives
It is the ultimate educational goal of MVJA to help prepare students to:
•Be aware of God’s divine purpose for restoring humanity in His image.
•Be obedient to God’s law of love when making decisions.

•Teach young people to be honest, courteous, compassionate, thorough and industrious workers.
•Be discriminating in the use of leisure time and the choice of entertainment.
•Develop an appreciation for those things that are true, honest, just, pure, and lovely through an acquaintance with great art, literature and music.
•Strive for academic excellence as a worthy and measurable goal.
•Recognize God’s supreme authority.
•Be motivated to do their best in every activity because of their love for God.
•Cooperate with various service agencies in assuming responsibility for the welfare of others.
•Be willing to assume responsibilities as contributors to a democratic society and to their church organization.


History
In 1965 the Trenton Seventh Day Adventist {SDA} Church and the Mt. Holly SDA Church combined their schools to form Meadow View School. The school first opened its doors for the 1966-67 school year. In 1969 the Burlington SDA Church also joined this consolidated school program.

Originally the school building consisted of four classrooms, an office and a library. In 1973 the gymnasium, kitchen, and 3 classrooms were added. In 1976 a sidewalk was added and in 1981 a garage in the rear of the school was finished.

Through the years, however, the one thing that has remained constant is Meadow View’s commitment to educate young people following biblical standards, with the objective of preparing them to meet their earthly responsibilities as well as preparing them for their heavenly home.
