This next month the Commission on Accreditation for the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists will be sending a team to evaluate Midland Adventist Academy.

The results of the survey help the committee in assessing the quality of the school program and in developing and recommending improvements.
Within the next week you will be receiving a copy of the survey. Thank you for taking the time to thoughtfully respond and then return the survey sealed in the enclosed envelope.
