Weimar Academy is a self-supporting Seventh-day Adventist boarding high school and part of the Weimar Institute in Placer County, California. To fully equip dedicated Seventh-day Adventist young people, who love Christ, be His end-time disciples, winning the world for Him.
Weimar Academy is located on 457 acres of wooded land in the Sierra Nevada Mountain foothills at an elevation of 2,250 feet. It is just off California's Interstate 80, 45 miles northeast of Sacramento, and about 45 miles southwest of Lake Tahoe. Both San Francisco (west) and Reno, Nevada (northeast), are approximately ninety miles from the school. Winters are mild (30/40-degrees Fahrenheit), with occasional snow and frequent rainfall. Daytime summer temperatures can rise above 100 degrees. Spring and fall are mild and sunny.
The ladies' and men's dormitories, which house our students, have a large living room that provides a warm, home-like atmosphere for worships or visiting. Classes and chapel meetings are held in the Academy Center, located on the men's dormitory building and the main Institute campus for music. The campus church, cafeteria, and most student work assignments are located on the main campus.
Based on the principles of proper education (as outlined in the Bible and Spirit of Prophecy), Weimar Academy's program provides a healthy balance of spiritual, mental, and physical training. It seeks to meet God's standards for proper education and operates under an approved status from California. However, Weimar Academy has not chosen to seek regional accreditation. Weimar's academic program (college preparatory or general) meets or exceeds other accredited institutions' academic expectations regarding curricular quality and verifiable evidence of student achievement (as shown on standardized test scores). Graduates are readily accepted by Christian or secular colleges and universities.
