>Home >About >Welcome


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Northern Ohio Adventist Academy, where we strive for excellence. We believe that God has blessed NOAA with an opportunity to minister to families in the greater Cleveland area. We are supported by area Seventh-Day Adventist churches and by individuals who value Adventist Education and its impact on previous, current, and future generations. We seek to provide a place where children can grow spiritually, academically, and socially in a caring and challenging environment. It is our prayer and desire that when students enter our building, they would feel loved and as a result, grow in confidence to become what God created them to be.  


We are richly blessed with a dedicated and experienced staff, each of whom are committed to academic excellence and building a Christ-like character in our students. We strive to offer a variety of learning experiences through differentiated instruction that will inspire innovative thinkers and confident, life-long learners. We believe that each of our students is equipped with God-given gifts that they ought to discover in an environment where various learning styles are encouraged and celebrated. Our multi-grade classroom model encourages individual growth in a social setting that creates and encourages positive interaction.


I consider it our mission to partner with parents to provide an outstanding education grounded in a Biblical worldview. We understand that educating the whole-child takes teamwork; therefore, we encourage parents to become involved in their child’s educational experiences through field trips, various school and service projects, Home & School Association, etc.; so that together, we can provide the best education possible.


Above all, our goal is to teach children to seek the Kingdom of God and to glorify Him in all they do. We are all, under construction; academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In Him, the whole building is joined together as rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in Him, you too, are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit (Eph. 2:20-22, NIV).”


It is my privilege and truly, a blessing to serve NOAA, God’s miracle school, as its principal. I invite you to experience the advantages of the Adventist Education model by becoming part of the Northern Ohio Adventist Academy Family. If I can be of any further assistance to you, please contact me through our school office at (440)830-2043 or through my e-mail at rsukola@noaaeducation.org.


ONLY by HIS Grace,

Rita Sukola – NOAA Principal
