The College has rested on 182 hectares of property, commonly known as Kuyera, which has been given to the church in 1947 by the Ethiopian Government to be used for the training of young people. From 1947 to 1950 the school grew to full elementary and Junior Secondary levels. In 1951 a teacher training program was started and continued until 1957. Full senior Secondary Academic program was started in 1955 and the first full secondary graduation took place in 1958.

The college level program began on October 1, 1964 and offered a variety of courses until 1975. In 1975 the college program was suspended because of the change in the political regime. However, in 1990, after the interim 15 years, the college restarted with a two-year program offering courses in Business, Agriculture, Education and Religion. In 1998, The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia Ministry of Education gave accreditation to the College’s diploma programs in the areas of Business Administration (Accounting and Management) and Education (Biology, English and Agriculture).

A devastating fire in 1999 completely destroyed the main administrative block, and with it most of the library holdings, crucial records and the entire facility became unusable. Hand in hand with the reconstruction work in 2001, the College entered into an affiliation agreement with the University of Eastern Africa Baraton, Kenya and began four-year degree programs in Accounting, Management and Theology. While shifting its activities to temporary buildings on the campus and to the secondary school, the College completed a new facility by 2002.

A year later, the College requested the Ethiopian Ministry of Education for accreditation to start its own degree programs in Business Administration (Accounting and Management) and Community Development and Leadership, and with the approval of the government the full-fledged degree programs were started.

At present EAC is offering degree programs as well as Technical and Vocational Education Trainings (TVET). In addition, EAC runs the Academy, Elementary and Junior Secondary, as well as overseas schools as auxiliary departments. A plan is underway to design and offer numerous degree and TVET programs to respond to the new educational policy of the government. It is envisioned that the College will offer course in Business and Economics, Natural Sciences, Community Health, Agriculture, and Social Sciences (Community Development and Leadership and Social Work and Social Administration).

EAC is committed to equal educational opportunity for men and women, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, marital status, religious affiliations, or disability among its students for admission. It welcomes all who want to acquire a quality education in a beautiful, serene and calm setting.

Who are Seventh-day Adventists?

Seventh-day Adventists trace their roots back to the Millerite movement of the 1840s when thousands of Christians were searching for a better understanding of Bible prophecy. A small group of these searchers, based in New England, felt impressed to start a church with the knowledge they had gained. The name they chose reflects two distinctive ideas they discovered: "Seventh-day" refers to the biblical Sabbath, Saturday. The fourth commandment of God's unchangeable law requires the observance of this seventh-day Sabbath as the day of rest, worship and ministry in harmony with the teaching and practice of Jesus, the Lord of the Sabbath. "Adventist" refers to the second coming of Jesus - something they believed was happening soon. In 1863, pioneers organized the new denomination with 3,500 members worshiping in 125 churches. The church grew quickly and today there are over 19 million members in 237 countries around the world. Adventists operate the largest Protestant hospital and educational system in the world, as well as several publishing houses and humanitarian organizations.

Adventist Beliefs

Adventists hold most beliefs in common with other Protestants. The Trinity. The divinity of Jesus. Salvation through faith in Jesus. Adventists believe that true spirituality impacts every area of their lives. Physical health, a sound mind and strong relationships with God and other people are all seen as important. Each week Adventists celebrate a 24-hour Sabbath rest from work and school, from Friday sunset through Saturday sunset. The day is about taking a break from the daily grind, spending quality time in worship, and nurturing relationships with family and friends.
