For the current school year, Caucasians comprise about 79% of the student body, Asians about 10%, Hispanics about 4%, and African Americans about 3%.

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.

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.

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!

SSAT and ISEE scores are one part of the total picture which most private school admissions staff review. These standardized tests reveal what you have learned in key mastery areas.
Do you think your son has a learning disability? Not sure what to do? A special needs school might be the way to go.
You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
