  • 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.
