I wanted to come to PAA but didn’t think I could. But I’m here now. I’ve had a lot of help, either from anonymous people or people I’ve met face to face and it means so much to me.

Welcome to Development

The Portland Adventist Academy development office is always buzzing with students, staff and alumni alike. In this office, relationships matter most.

You’ll find that we are always working on an exciting opportunity to help our community give to their favorite causes. Whether the event is an auction, banquet, scholarship brunch, community-wide service project, concert, alumni weekend, a golf tournament, a community block party or even a mission trip, it’s all about people caring and sharing.

We’re also the school story tellers. Our ears are always open for a heart-warming tale of hope and success. We consider it a joy to share the good news about Portland Adventist Academy!
