Welcome to San Fernando Valley Academy
We are a Seventh-day Adventist school located in Northridge, California.
This year our theme is "Christ for Our Time." 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.
Our roots go back to 1902 when the newly organized Southern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists opened the “The Fernando College” in San Fernando with 37 students. It was located on about 40 acres between what is now Brand Blvd., the Pacoima wash, Glenoaks and Lucas Street at the then abandoned Maclay Seminary campus which had moved on to U.S.C. At a time when San Fernando Valley was orange groves and dirt roads the school boasted a complete boarding college and farm.
Our new principal is Sheldon Parris, who returns to Southern California after serving Portland Adventist Academy as principal. Welcome, Principal Parris!
