East Visayan Adventist Academy (Leyte) (Leyte, PH)

A coeducational boarding high school established in 1992 at Leyte, Philippines. The members of the East Visayan Mission had long wanted a secondary school in their field. In the late 1980s they were able to purchase a 35-acre (14-hectare) plot of land for 200,000 pesos. Construction of the first building began in 1990, and the school was officially opened June 15, 1992. The beginning enrollment was 167, with six teachers. Industries include farming and hollow brick making. The school owns a tractor, a turtle-type power tiller, a rice thresher, a rice mill, a truck, and welding equipment. Recently the academy was presented with a 20-passenger jeepney, the gift of Pastor and Mrs. S. Suzuki, visitors from Japan. Principal: Elias M. Jucaban, 1992- .
