Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA) is a consortium of Seventh-day Adventist Colleges and Universities in North America and Australia which operates under the auspices of the Office of Education of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists located in Columbia, Maryland.

The ACA consortium provides opportunities to qualified secondary and undergraduate students for study in other countries while completing requirements of their programs at their home colleges. Students are immersed in the culture and life of another country while becoming conversant in its language. Through such experiences students also may gain an appreciation of and perhaps an inspiration for mission or other multi-cultural service.

We’ve proudly promoted Learning without Borders since 1961.
