Seventh-day Adventist education at Berean Junior Academy began  in 1933, making us the oldest African-American Christian academy in Mecklenburg County. The academy has been located at two other sites before moving to its present site on Beatties Ford Road in 1989.

Berean Junior Academy was founded by Berean S.D.A. Church and is supported through the subsidy provided by three constituent Seventh-day Adventist churches: Berean S.D.A. Church, Charlotte Northeast S.D.A. Church and Trinity Worship Center.
