History of Lodi Academy

Lodi Academy is a co-education day school operated under the jurisdiction of the Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. It is situated on a 40-acre tract on the southeast corner of the city limits of Lodi, just off of Highway 99.  

Lodi Academy first opened its doors as a boarding school in 1908, offering high school and post-secondary courses in education. It began with three buildings, the girls' dormitory, the administration building and the boy's dormitory. These three were soon augmented by a dairy which offered milk delivery to the community, a laundry, a press that did school and commercial work, and an auditorium. In 1965 it was decided to rebuild our campus, but no longer as a boarding school. In 1968 we officially became a day school. In 1986 Lodi SDA Elementary moved their school from Garfield Street to the Lodi Academy campus. This created what we have now, one large campus with separate schools offering elementary and middle school K-8 and highschool 9-12. If you are ever interested in visiting our campus we'd be happy to give you a tour!
