Where Community & Education Unite
Empower, educate, excel. Bridging gaps in learning.
We envision a future in which all children are honored with equitable access to high quality education that results in success in community and career. We will empower all students to become critical thinkers, innovative problem solvers, and effective leaders through a dynamic and collaborative curriculum.
What Makes SVA Unique
Our Scratch-Cooked Meal Program
MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORTS ONSITE
Our counseling services include more than a response to a situation that already exists. By building in proactive strategies, including small-group counseling activities and discussions, as well as classroom presentations on topics that promote academic and social-emotional growth, our counselor Ms. Tabitha provides positive examples of behavior students can incorporate in their lives, leading to healthier decisions and more positive actions.
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports

We of this Academy, named after the Principal Local Indigenous Village of Shanél, acknowledge with honor the Shóqowa and Hopland People on whose traditional, ancestral, and unceded lands we work, educate and learn and whose historical and spiritual relationship with these lands continues to this day and beyond.
