What Are Academy Days?
Academy Days is an annual opportunity for students in grades seven through eleven to experience Thunderbird Adventist Academy. Prospective students will have the opportunity to experience life as a Thunderbird student and get acquainted with our campus and prospective teachers and fellow students.
Mark your calendars to join us on April 14 & 15, 2019!
This year 8th grade students have the opportunity to experience the excitement of flying and to talk to our flight instructors about the flight program. Students choosing to participate in our discovery flights during Academy Days must complete the AWA (Adventist World Aviation) agreement & release, including parent/guardian signature and bring to Academy Days.
