For the 2018–19 academic year, Chesapeake Conference's Spencerville Adventist Academy has more alumni working at the school than ever before. In fact, it has become something of a running joke among staff members who have been here for quite some time that the school is now being run by students. In the high school alone, one-fourth of the teachers are former graduates.
The Versacare Foundation recently awarded $1,159,000 in grant funding to Adventist Education, including $920,000 to 118 primary and secondary schools across the United States and Canada in support of STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).
Hurricanes were particularly destructive in the U.S. last year. Places such as Texas, Puerto Rico and some of the U.S. Virgin Islands experienced overwhelming devastation. So Takoma Academy (TA) sprang into action.
Chesapeake Conference's Spencerville Adventist Academy is excited to celebrate 75 years of Adventist education this year! Beginning as a one-room school in 1943, the school has grown to more than 400 students in grades Pre-K through 12th grade.
