New Student Application Procedure


Students entering grades nine through twelve who express and demonstrate a definite interest in receiving a Christian education are eligible for admission. No religious test is applied; however, only students who show due respect for the Word of God, maintain a positive and reverent attitude toward that which is spiritual, and conduct themselves in harmony with the principles and standards of Christian education as upheld by the Seventh-day Adventist Church should apply for admission to Dakota Adventist Academy.

Dakota Adventist Academy is not equipped to handle young people who have major behavioral or scholastic difficulties.

A student who presents himself/herself for admission to the school, thereby declares that he/she has chosen to give proper respect and observance to the religious beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, including attendance at required programs, and to observe willingly all its regulations, provide a positive attitude, and uphold the Christian principles upon which the school is founded.


Submit a completed application form, including:

a. $10 application fee

b. recent photograph

c. three completed recommendation forms

When a written acceptance letter is received from the Academy, submit the following:

a. completed Medical Evaluation Record, including immunization dates

b. birth certificate

c. record of credits and transcript from last school attended and/or eighth grade certificate of completion

d. arrangements for the student's account to be paid or arranged for by registration day

Please call us at (701) 258-9000 if you have questions.


We want all of our students to start strong, so everyone should register on or before Registration Day. Classes start the day after Registration Day, so get ready! Students who register more than two weeks late for the semester will only be allowed to take a full class load if approved by the Academic Affairs Committee. Late registrants who receive full credit for the semester will pay full tuition. Students who leave school early will also be expected to pay full tuition if they are given permission to complete their assignments to receive full credit for the year.


Dakota Adventist Academy admits students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at Dakota Adventist Academy. The Academy does not discriminate in the administration of its educational and admissions policies, scholarship programs, or athletic and other school administered programs.
