April 28, 2008, was a very special day for the students, faculty, and staff of the Brockton Area Seventh-day Adventist Academy. It was the day that the everyone waited for with heightened anticipation!
Brockton Area Seventh-day Adventist Academy was established on September 3, 2002. The school opened with 67 students. Since its inception, and due to circumstances beyond its control, the school for various reasons was forced to relocate several times. Undoubtedly, this difficult situation caused us to pray often, and searched vigorously for our own building. God saw our need, heard our prayers, and responded positively, by providing us with a beautiful, and spacious permanent site.
The big anticipated moment came on Monday, April 28, 2008, at 9:00 a. m. All the students, faculty, staff, and many parents, gathered at 243 Court Street, Brockton, to observe the ribbon cutting to the permanent home of the Brockton Area Seventh-day Adventist Academy. The great moment came however, when the school board chairperson, Mr. Albert Pierre-Canel, finally snipped the ribbon and declared the building officially opened to conduct school business. Observing this very special occasion also was the Dr. Pollyanna Barnes, superintendent of schools for Northeastern Conference.
God has finally given Brockton Area Seventh-day Adventist Academy a permanent location, and we are very thankful. The building is large, spacious, and adequate for our academic needs. We truly thank God for helping us to acquire this fine and lovely building. To Him be Glory, Honor, and Praise!
