Welcome to San Fernando Valley Academy
We are a Seventh-day Adventist Christian school located in Northridge, California
This year our theme is "God first." Our staff is committed to providing quality education in a Christ-filled environment. We will be using cutting edge technology to prepare our students for an adult life of spiritual growth and Christian service
SFVA roots go back to 1902 when the newly organized Southern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists opened the “The Fernando College” in San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California, USA with 37 students. The school was about 40 acres located between Brand Blvd, Glenoaks Blvd and Lucas St.. (Former Maclay Seminary campus which had moved to the current University of Southern California -USC). At that time the San Fernando Valley was full of orange groves and our school boasted a complete boarding college with a farm.
WELCOME TO ALL
Our Principal, Mr. Oscar Withmory, Ma. Ed., returned to SFVA as an Assistant Business Manager in October 2017. Today he is serving as a Principal/Business Manager with the help of our two Vice-Principals: Dr. Deborah Baroi, V.P. for High School and Ms. Shelly Husbanns, V.P for Elementary. Our Principal and Vice Principals welcome all the parents and students to make this school year the best year ever, with our focus: "God first".
