School Notes

  • Preparing a student for an ever-changing world is not an easy task. Simi Valley Adventist School believes that there is a need to prepare students for this complex, energetic, tech-savvy 21st century. The Global Digital Citizen Foundation has gathered information from educators from around the world now define the 21st-century students as students that have the following skills: Problem-solving Creativity Analytic thinkingCollaborationCommunicationSVAS believes in inspiring and challenging each student to include each of these skills. We believe in preparing a child for a life where they don`t just survive but succeed at the next level. Developing these abilities and traits will serve them in a new era that will shift and emerge rapidly.
  • Today, SVAS is striving to become a model 21st century school. What does that mean? We believe that the 21stcentury classroom considers the environment the child learns within. We have begun the process of reimagining our classrooms to empower students to work freely, collaboratively, and without restrictions. Flexibility in the classroom is key, as students need adaptable spaces to learn, create, design, build, and grow. We are reimaging the rooms for 21st-century education. Come by the office to see what exciting new plans we have.
  • At SVAS, we believe that parents should be involved in their child`s daily school life. Our dedicated staff wants to work with parents toward the common goal of their student`s success; together we are a team. Our 21st-century school model embraces a collaborative philosophy of a parent and teacher partnership, one where we share the power and responsibility for each child`s educational development.
  • We know that your child`s teacher plays a crucial role in helping your child achieve success both inside and outside the classroom. Because of this important responsibility, we only hire staff from the top tier of candidates. Each member of our team strives to remain fresh and open to new ideas. At SVAS, we provide regular, open-ended, and current professional development opportunities to all our teachers throughout each academic year. We encourage our teachers to continue learning and growing throughout their career with us so they can consistently provide the highest quality of education to your child. We want our teachers, like students, to have an obligation to remain fresh and open to new ideas.
  • Furthermore, we are committed to creating an environment where each teacher feels they can not only be successful in the classroom and appreciated by parents and administration, but also a place where teachers can grow in their craft.
  • To truly become a model 21st century school, we believe it is important that we connect with both our local church and community. We desire to be an asset for both our church and community by giving back and getting involved.

My son has loved this school for the past 3 years he has been there. The small class size gives him the attention any kid would benefit from, to excel in all subjects. We are a military family, so he was used to changing schools often. The super friendly close staff and students welcomed us like family. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their child to excel in school while loving to be there doing it.

As a non-Adventist, I enrolled my daughters into this fully accredited school six years ago. The teachers have advanced degrees, the classes are limited to 10 students per grade level. With small class sizes, each student works at their own pace and achieves mastery before moving forward. The faculty loves each student and is their personal cheerleader, staying after school to tutor if needed (or to get ahead). The staff is invested in each child. With all the challenges our children face today, not worrying about their education is a welcome relief. I`m glad we are part of the family. As my 8th grader prepares to culminate, I know she has all the tools she needs for a successful high school career. Academically she is exceeding state averages and even some nationally! She can handle anything high school throws at her. The small class size in middle school was a blessing. Any typical middle school issues had to be resolved; there is no running away to another group of friends. At SVAS, the students work through their problems with each other in loving, prayer-filled cooperation. We know the friends made at this school will be part of a lifetime network.

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?
