Work-Study Program

MAA offers its students a work-study curriculum, providing students with the opportunity to help defray the cost of their education as well as giving them hands-on experience as they develop a positive work ethic.

School History

Milo Adventist Academy was founded in 1954. It derived its name from the town located just downstream. At the time, the town of Milo was official because it had a U.S. Post Office. When the post office was permanently closed, MAA’s address became Days Creek, a small town nine miles west of campus. The campus sits on approximately 475 acres bordered by timber and the South Umpqua River.
