The aim of Seventh-day Adventist education is to enable learners to develop a life of faith in God, and to use their knowledge, skills, and understandings to serve God and humanity. Our goal is for every learner to excel in faith, learning, and service, blending biblical truth and academic achievement to honor God and bless others. We strive to help young people foster a balanced development of the whole person—spiritual, physical, intellectual, and social-emotional—a process that spans a lifetime. We work in partnership with the our parents to prepare learners to be good citizens in this world and for eternity.
A Tradition of Service
Sandia View Academy believes that service to others is an integral part of a person’s life. Once a month, students take time out of their studies to “give back”. They bake cookies, help the local food bank, clean up yards, sing to and visit with elderly, or provide worship to and play with younger students at sister schools. As a result, students experience the value of giving of themselves to those around them.
Sandia View Academy is a college preparatory school and seeks students who are committed to growing academically, spiritually, physically, and socially. The required honors level curriculum includes classes in the following subject areas: Religion, English, Social Studies, Communication/Business, Physical Education, Health, Computer Science, Fine Arts, and Electives
Trips and Experiential Learning
Trips enhance and extend the education opportunities at Sandia View Academy. Experiential learning is key for students to apply what they learn in the classroom to real-world experiences. Student leaders have an opportunity to participate in an out-of-state weekend Leadership Camp with other student leaders from high schools across the Southwestern Union of Seventh-day Adventist. Students taking biology have a week long Biology Outdoor Trip where they explore biomes in northern and central New Mexico investigating and documenting the flora and fauna those biomes contain. The Senior class is taken on a weekend called Senior Survival, held in the Jemez Mountains where they participate in high and low ropes-type activities intended to facilitate team building. Seniors also have a four-day University Experience at Southwestern Adventist University (SWAU) with opportunities to discover career options. Additional field trips out-of-state include Music Festival and Brain Games. Students must maintain their grades to be eligible for out-of-state trips.
Providing opportunities for students to develop their athletic skills is important at SVA. Student athletes are expected to maintain their academics during each sport season. Along with a gymnastics team performing acrobatics, SVA is a member of the Albuquerque Charter School League (ACSL). We have varsity teams for 1) co-ed soccer, played in the fall; 2) both girls and boys basketball, played during the winter; and 3) girl’s volleyball, played in the spring. SVA also participates in SWAU’s annual Hoop Classic in Keene, Texas where our students are able to play competitively with small school teams from all over North America and Puerto Rico.
Music and Art Program
Every year SWAU hosts an exclusive Music Festival for High School and Academy musicians held at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, TX. SVA choir members travel to and attend this four day event. The festival features three festival ensembles; choir, symphonic band and symphony orchestra. In addition to the festival ensembles, elite musicians may audition for a Music Festival Scholarship. Students that audition have the chance of being selected as a Scholarship Finalist. Students advancing as finalists may also be awarded a performance scholarship to attend Southwestern by the Department of Music.
