The school was established in 1948 and graduated its first senior class in the spring of 1958. Sacramento Adventist Academy is accredited with the State of California through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists Students at Sacramento Adventist Academy have a variety of opportunities to serve the community and participate in witnessing activities such as church-sponsored domestic and international mission trips. Also, junior high students bring in hundreds of bags of groceries each November to stock area food banks. Students witness through drama and musical presentations in constituent churches. High school music groups tour various parts of the state and outside of California as well. Sacramento Adventist Academy parents and students have demonstrated a strong interest in college preparation. College enrollment figures from transcript request data and personal interviews show that over 90% of SAA high school graduates choose to attend a two or four-year college/university. Students in grades 3 through 8 take the ITBS test each school year in the fall. Students in grades 9-12 take the ITED test. The PSAT is administered to all sophomores and juniors; freshmen may request to take this exam. Through testing and monitoring, students found to be low in certain areas are counseled to seek tutoring and/or additional testing to determine learning difficulties. One of the ways this is done is by assigning students with failing grades to Academic Probation. When a student is on Academic Probation he/she meets with the Registrar once a week to check his/her progress. Most of these students are on Academic Probation for only one grading period, since their grades improve during that time. The faculty and staff of SAA are committed to ensuring that all students achieve success.
