Areas in Need

Student Financial Aid

At WWVA we believe that a high quality, Adventist education should be possible to anyone and everyone—no matter their financial standing. That is why we have prioritized being able to provide student financial aid at our Academy. In fact, 59% of our students receive some type of aid. Aid helps put 25% of our student body to work at SonBridge and our community mentoring program (PFE). WWVA needs $205,000 in total aid for this academic year. We are blessed by prior endowments alumni and friends set up as well as a supportive Conference and Union. We get $90,000 from these greatly appreciated sources. After this help, we still have an additional $115,000 to raise this year. To help provide youth with an excellent, Christ-centered education, please click on the “donate” button to support this worthy cause.

Annual Fund- Auditorium Improvement

Our WWVA Auditorium holds many special memories throughout our history, including church, vespers, graduations, chapels, classes and more. Throughout all that memory making, our auditorium has taken some normal wear and tear. It is our goal this year to raise the funds necessary to make much-needed improvements. To help us create a place for memories to be made and lessons to be learned for many years to come, click on the “donate” button. Thank you for helping us reach our goal of presenting ourselves with our best foot forward.”

Give Like Ed Shinner Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Give Like Ed Shinner Memorial Scholarship Fund was started in early 2021 after Ed’s passing due to a car accident on January 8, 2021. Ed was known for his spirit of giving-he was constantly generous. He made an unforgettable positive impact on the WWVA community. Not only was Ed generous with his time, volunteering to drive the bus for countless trips and games, but he was generous financially as well. His wife, Janice, son Sammy, and the entire WWVA community will miss him greatly and remember him fondly. Help keep alive the belief that life is best when lived generously by clicking the “donate” button.

Facilities Improvement 

In order for WWVA to be at its best, we have to be fully functional. To be fully functional, we need to have a safe, secure space to teach and learn. One of our biggest goals this year, is to raise the necessary funds required to replace our roof. This will be a very expensive, but necessary project. To help us provide a safe, secure space, so our teachers can focus on teaching and our students can focus on learning, click on the “donate” button” to help us improve our facilities.

You can create a secure account through our vendor that will keep your information secure and make payments easy, or you can pay each time as a guest and enter your information. If you have questions, please contact Rachelle Ellis in our finance department at Ellira@wwva.org or our principal Erik Borges at borger@wwva.org.

WWVA Lodge

One of our long-term projects, is to finish the WWVA Lodge. The WWVA Lodge will be a place used for outdoor learning, leadership training, team building, our annual Senior Survival trip and by Walla Walla Valley SDA Churches as a retreat. Our goal is to break ground in 2024. In order to do that, we have to raise significant funds. To donate to the WWVA Lodge project, click on the “donate” button. Thank you for helping us extend our WWVA reach!

Thank you for helping our program be the best it can be.
