SAA is a great Christian school with small class size and individual attention. All parents in lower grades get home visits for goal setting before the beginning of the year and get to know the teachers well. We have a gardening program where kids can learn about weeds, agriculture/horticulture, and relating to our environment. I also believe that a child's character is their greatest asset, and teach in a Service Learning format where 1 day a week in the PM part is dedicated to community service projects. All of my Kindergarteners learn to read by December with the RIGGS and Pathways reading programs. Math is hands on and applied to the world. Prayer begins, ends, and winds its way through all of our days as we work with the children at SAA and we care for each one as a special individual created by God.

I have been extremely pleased with the education my children are receiving at Springs Adventist Academy. There is a low student to teacher ratio. The curriculum is Bible based. The children that start the program in Kindergarten are all able to read at or in most cases above grade level. My eldest child has ranked in the 99th percentile nation wide in the ITBS tests and his entire education has been at SAA. SAA also offers a music program for all children grades 4 and up -- band, choir or bells. There is an afterschool sports proram for grades 5 and up. The school is small enough that the staff know each child. The teachers are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty with the children in their class.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
