Sacramento Adventist Academy Reviews

Sacramento Adventist Academy serves its purpose as an accredited high school and Seventh-day Adventist community. The community and environment for the students and staff is spectacular, but overall the school lacks in resources. There are very few opportunities to be involved with the outside community and not enough activities to participate in within the school. There are sports, robotics and music that are lead by the school, but there are no officially lead student clubs and organizations. The staff is limited, thus the classes are as well, AP courses are minimal, offering a select few each year. The few AP classes tie in with the lack of college readiness students receive. This is not necessarily true however, because the students attending SAA are very well prepared and are encouraged to enroll into its related colleges. SAA acts as a feeder school in this sense to other Seventh-day Adventist colleges, but does not suffice the average student for more prestigious universities.

SAA was a very welcoming place for me. I came in as a freshman, and most of my classmates already knew each other from elementary school; however, they were extremely welcoming to me. The teachers are extremely dedicated to students' success, pulling long hours before and after school to help students with homework, projects, or just talk and get to know them. The administration is extremely effective and well-organized, even more so now than when I first started going to school there. Over the last several years they have also initiated programs to increase student curiosity, creativity, and ambition. I wish they had more electives offered, and more AP classes, but for a small school they do have a good variety available.
Loved the teachers, classmates and all the activities. From music to sports. Close knit school. The school has a large music department involving all the students. They have bell choir, jazz band, band and choir. I played on varsity flag football all four years in High school. They have a very strong and supportive sports department. We were able to travel and have a lot of fun on these trips. Our classes were small which meant a lot of time for our teachers to invest in the students and be available when needed. The staff really cared about us students.
