Orlando Junior Academy is a Christian, Seventh-day Adventist school located in the neighborhood of College Park in Orlando, Florida.  Our school garden's purpose is to extend the students' curriculum beyond the classroom to the outdoors where the natural world becomes the textbook.  Our nutritional science lab also challenges the typical classroom setting by integrating math and science into the cultural appreciation of nutritious and delicious food. These venues provide our students with experiences that are inspiring and engaging, experiences that require critical thinking skills, discipline and physical activity.  Through the edible schoolyard philosophy we enjoy the satisfaction of real work and gain a greater understanding and appreciation of our food.
