School Notes

  • Community The majority of Sacramento Adventist Academy students come from homes where at least one parent is a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church (SDA). About 88% of the student body comes from representative constituent churches, about 5% from other SDA churches, with the remaining 7% coming from non-SDA backgrounds. For the current school year, Caucasians comprise about 79% of the student body, Asians about 10%, Hispanics about 4%, and African Americans about 3%. Sacramento County is one of 58 counties in California and is home to the state capitol. The county lies in the Central Valley at the confluence of the Sacramento and American Rivers. It has 965.7 square miles in land area and a population density of 1,400.5 per square mile. According to the County of Sacramento, the estimated population on January 1, 2008, was 1,424,415. This increased by 1.3% from the 2007 census. Ethnically, according to quickfacts.census.gov, Sacramento is a combination Caucasians (69%), Hispanics (19.3%), Asians (13.5%), and African Americans (10.5%). In 2004, the median household income was $47,215. The median price of housing in Carmichael is reported to be $174,300 in 2009, a significant decrease from prior years. In 2004, public administration was the largest of the employment sectors. Other major sectors include construction, health care, services, and technology. According to PrivateSchoolReview.com there are nearly 54 private high schools and 136 private elementary schools in Sacramento County.

We will provide the opportunity to discover a loving God, accept Jesus Christ as a personal Savior, and develop Christ-centered wisdom to make the best decisions. Our Mission Statement Sacramento Adventist Academy exists to provide a value-centered Christian education in an environment of academic excellence.

I love SAA. The music program is amazing, with the band starting at 4th grade, the choir from Kindergarten, and even more options in high school. The sports are also great, with a wide variety offered, including volleyball, soccer, flag football, and softball. All the teachers are amazing, and the education is great. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a good, Christian education. Everyone is welcome!
