Let there be light

We are proud of our school seal and the history it represents. South Lancaster Academy is the oldest, continually operating Seventh-day Adventist school in the world. Founded in 1882 and officially incorporated in 1883, we have a rich history of providing quality Christian education to generations of children in New England.
The Latin words, “fiat lux,” that emboldens the seal above the Bible and quills mean “let there be light.” These are the first recorded words that God spoke. “Let there be light, and there was light,” Genesis 1:3.

As Christians we are admonished to be a light unto the world. Light is the source of goodness and drives out darkness. Light illuminates understanding. God is the source of light.

We want to continue sharing that light with our students and their families, our alumni, our church family, and all in our community. There are many ways to do this and this email newsletter is just one way by providing regular updates on what we are doing at SLA.

Welcome to our first monthly edition of Fiat Lux, shining light on the happenings at South Lancaster Academy.
