SAA is a fabulous place to send your kids! The music, athletic, and academic programs really take your kids to their full potential. Teachers make time for students individually that need help. They amazing teachers who teach in a positive and encouraging manner. The students who attend SAA feel like they're part of a big family!

BEST SCHOOL EVER! I have been going to SAA for 6 years now! I love my teachers as well! They have taught me so much and care about each student. I highly recommend this school.

This school is fantastic. The faculty shows such a passion for teaching. They care so much for the children not only acedemically but on a personal level as well. I can genuinely say that my children and I feel like we are part of a large family there.

We have been sending our children to Sacramento Adventist Academy for the past 5 years. We currently have 3 children enrolled there and drive 30 min. one way to take our children to school. SAA is a wonderful school. The teachers are very caring and loving and treat the children as their own. Small classroom sizes allow each student to receive personalized attention. Since this is a Christian school, the students are taught Biblically based values. The students have an opportunity to participate in many activities, including sports, music, field trips and community service, giving them a well rounded education.

Fabulous music program which begins in kindergarten and blossoms in the secondary level! Includes chimes and bell choir, and elementary and secondary bands, choirs, & etc. Each teacher we have had has been very committed to a their teaching and to creating an environment where each child learns respect and orderliness in their work and their classroom.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
