Almighty gives me life.” -Job 33:4

Medical Academy Program
Provides Bakersfield
Students With Hands-On

Generous donors to Bakersfield Adventist Academy’s new medical academy program are providing a dynamic environment of real life activity in health science careers. Students engage in exploration of various professions and develop career-ready practices in dentistry, nursing, EMT, therapeutic services, ophthalmology, and sports medicine! Additional careers will be added next year. Melissa, a senior, told her mom, “My thinking about what I want to do has really been opened up because there is so much out there that I can do!”

RCA’s Castle Reading
Center Encourages
Young People to Read
and Learn

At Riverview Christian Academy (RCA) in Reno, Nev., students are given exciting new ways to learn. Every year, 2-4th-grade teacher Mariann Beddoe takes her students on a journey through different continents, countries, and cultures. Students even receive stamps in faux passports! This year, Beddoe’s students are exploring Europe. “The castle reading center is used as an incentive to complete classwork assignments in order to READ, READ, READ, all within a setting that promotes a better understanding of this wonderful world God made for us,” Beddoe says. On Fridays, students are allowed time to use the Castle in other imaginative ways, in addition to reading there.
