Educating for Eternity

“True education means more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come.”
Education, pg. 13


A combination of work and play constitutes the physical development of our students. Each student is employed for a portion of each day where their mental and physical skills can be put to practical use. Additionally, recreation in the form of an organized intramural program is held three times per week with additional recreation periods occurring on most weekends. Sabbath afternoon hikes are a frequent way for students to get exercise while enjoying God's creation.


Academic rigor is a benchmark of Fletcher Academy. While the standard is set high, helping students achieve their academic goals is a priority for our teachers. Our academic program is accredited through AdvancEd (formerly known as Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) and meets all the requirements of a college preparatory program. Students can enroll in dual credit college classes their Junior and Senior year and graduate with college credits.


At the heart of any successful Adventist school is the spiritual program. From engaging Bible classes to thoughtful religious services to meaningful outreach opportunities, students at Fletcher have opportunities to grow in their understanding and love for Jesus. Students are in a safe place to ask questions and receive loving biblical responses from a staff and a community that seeks their good.

We invite you to visit us in person and see our campus.

Making a Difference


We selected Fletcher for several reasons: solid Christian standards, history of a strong spiritual mission, good academics, and the potential for a variety of employment options--work is education!

quote from a parent

Principal's Welcome

PrincipalAfter beginning my career teaching mathematics and physics in a day academy, I eventually realized I was longing for a greater connection with my students. The Lord opened doors for me to begin teaching at another boarding academy which transitioned into the role of principal. Five years ago, I accepted the call to serve as the Principal of Fletcher Academy. During this time, I’ve witnessed our community’s dedication to our school and more importantly to investing in our young people. During uncertain times, there is one thing for certain, Jesus is coming again and He has given our school a specific job to do. We are to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and Him crucified to a dying world. There is no greater army of workers than our youth to accomplish this work.

Fletcher Academy has a long history of providing a solid foundation where young people can grow in their relationship with Christ while learning under the nurturing care of loving teachers and faculty. We are committed more than ever to equipping students for the world in which we live while encouraging them to focus on the world to which we are going. With four children of my own, I know how important it is to have a safe environment for them to develop. I encourage you to find out how you can become a part of the Fletcher Family.

May God bless you,

Phil Wilhelm
