San Diego Academy is a private coeducational K-12 school in the Seventh-day Adventist school system.
As a Seventh-day Adventist Christian K-12 college preparatory school, we provide a balanced program that prepares our diverse student population to become individuals who are spiritually whole, academically adept, socially skilled, and physically fit.
As Seventh-day Adventist Christians, we at San Diego Academy recognize God as the creator, the sustainer of life, and the source of knowledge and wisdom.
We believe that man's capacity for thought, decision-making, and action are attributes which God bestowed when He made man in His own image.
As a school, we consider the education of our students to be our primary function and accept the challenge of developing the minds of our students so that they may respond to the highest human calling, living a life with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
