Takoma Academy Preparatory School is an institution that was born from the combining of two century old institutions, Sligo Adventist School and John Nevins Andrews School. We are proud to share constituency with Takoma Park Church and even prouder that so many children have come through the doors of these schools and had an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ as part of their education. We have designed and built this new institution to offer the highest quality education while endeavoring to bring our children closer to Jesus Christ. 

Takoma Academy Preparatory School (TA Prep) guides children from early childhood through 8th grade to become lifelong learners. Taking a “whole child” approach, we offer a Christ-centered education that instills compassion, integrity, and accountability. We offer a balanced education that places emphasis on character development so that our students become critical thinkers, achievers, and servant leaders who are prepared for a fulfilling future in high school, college, and beyond.


Takoma Adventist Academy is a benefit to our community as a adventist educational institution, as a positive influence on our future generations and as a leader in community outreach. We support our local Academy!

Washington Adventist University is the campus that Sligo Church is located on. We partner with WAU in many, many ways that enhance the experience for both of our institutions. We love our students and as they grow in their education we endeavor to be a major part of their spiritual experience.
