- Simi Valley Adventist School is a part of the global Seventh-day Adventist educational program, which includes over 8,500 schools, colleges, and universities, with over 108,500 teachers and 1,954,920 students.
- We are a private, co-educational, Christian School in Simi Valley, California offering a quality Christian education from Kindergarten through eighth grade since 1953. Students are mentored by the finest, certified Adventist teachers.
- Adventists have a deep understanding that education should be redemptive in nature, for the purpose of restoring human beings to the image of God, our Creator. Mental, physical, social, and spiritual health, intellectual growth, and service to humanity form a core of values that are essential aspects of the Adventist education philosophy.
- Our students are challenged to learn new concepts, new skills, and new ways of thinking - all rising from the school's dedication to academic and spiritual excellence. Biblical models inspire students for living, and teachers assign practical opportunities to develop a God-like character of selfless service.
- Everyone on our staff looks for opportunities daily to lift Jesus Christ up to every student, family member, and the person who walks onto our campus.
- By making our school a place where God is King ensures the stability of relationships between students, parents, teachers, church members, and community.

- CognitiveGenesis, a four-year study of 30,000 students enrolled in Seventh-day Adventist schools across North America found that students in Seventh-day Adventist schools achieve an average of half a grade above-predicted ability in all subjects.
- We have a family atmosphere that is similar to what students encounter in the real world outside the classroom."The range of social relationships students build in a multilevel classroom more closely reflects the social situations individuals encounter in workplaces, communities, and families."edu.gov.mb.cas
- Seventh-day Adventist schools benefit from a curriculum especially designed for single and multigrade classrooms. The North American Division Office of Education has developed excellent, high-quality, standards-based materials for all classrooms. The curriculum is designed so that students are constantly connected with Christ and the possibilities He has for each life.
- 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. There are more opportunities for parents to be involved whether it is volunteering in the classroom, assisting with a field trip, or serving on the local school board
- 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.
- Students who attend Seventh-day Adventist schools are more likely to attend college. Over 85% of graduates from Seventh-day Adventist high schools attend college and over 80% of them complete college degrees. This is compared to 66% and 14% of public high school students respectively. Bridgeland, John M. The Silent Epidemic: Perspectives of High School Dropouts
- 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.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
