SRVCA has been providing a Christian education to students in the valley for 40 years.
We inspire our students to LOVE God , LEARN for a lifetime, and LEAD like Christ.
We work to this goal by partnering with parents, teachers and the church to disciple and develop the whole child -- spiritually, emotionally, socially and intellectually.
Small class sizes, highly qualified staff, experiential learning, and differentiated instruction are hallmarks of the Academy experience. Our mission is to provide a Christ-centered preschool - 8th grade education whereby students develop spiritually, academically, socially and physically and are equipped to fulfill God's purpose for their lives.
Students are educated as individuals with unique abilities and personality. Learn more about the Academy experience by joining us for our New Family Open House in October. Register: SRVCA.org.

We are so blessed to be a part of this school! We transferred our son two years ago from another nearby larger private school and it has been one of the best decisions. As a boy he was getting lost in a larger classroom and now, with fewer kids in his class, he is thriving! The teachers take the time to get to know him, engage him and work with him personally. They have challenged him to work beyond his expectations and he has stepped up to the plate due to their encouragement and nurturing guidance. The depth of the curriculum has blown us away - 3D models of the bodily systems, dissecting a cow's eye in 3rd grade, more hands-on field trips than you can count, and art classes teaching real techniques. I can't say enough good things about the talented Spanish teacher - these kids are will be the best prepared for high school. There's also wonderful team and individual technology projects the kids work on as well. This school has depth, breadth and incredible love and care for their students and families! It's a wonderful place for kids and families to grow! (Thank you so much SRVCA!!)

I have been blessed with three kids going got SRVCA from K-8th grade. We had opportunities to leave the bay area several times while the kids were growing up and we always stayed in large part due to this school. My kids had a great experience academically and spiritually. The sports program is unique and fun. The education is excellent while retaining biblical truths. I felt all there kids were well prepared for high school. We are sad that our last kid had graduated but we all have amazing memories of this tight knit community. It is a great place to raise your kids !

My son went through 8th grade at SRVCA and my daughter is currently attending. The school is a great learning environment. We have always felt like part of a family at SRVCA. The school is constantly striving to upgrade technology and continually reviews the curriculum to make sure it is at or above the state standards. The best part of SRVCA is that my kids feel like they are part of a loving community.

My children, currently ages 19, 18, and 13 have all attended SRVCA since Kindergarten. I have a current 7th grader now. I can not recommend highly enough the school based upon the biblical foundation of teaching, the compassion and care by the teachers and the education that my children have received/are receiving. High integrity, upstanding character, love for others, respect for authority, and compassion for the less fortunate are taught and modeled by both the teachers and administration. Academic excellence is expected in both teacher preparation and student work, and can be seen in many outside projects, writing assignments, group efforts, and applicable lessons. Biblical accountability is stressed in all areas, whether it be academics, athletics, conflict resolution, or personal relationships. My two older children were prepared both spiritually and academically to move on to a large public high school, where they were able to put into practice all of the skills that they gained at SRVCA. I would highly recommend this school without reservations to anyone looking for a Christian school for their K-8 child.
