78th Annual Homecoming: Go Ye Into the World (but not be of it)

Since the first graduating class in 1942, the Spanish-American began with the mission of training men and women to be Bible workers, evangelists, and pastors to share the gospel of Christ's love and soon return to Hispanic people in North America and in Latin and Central Americas. The mission remains the same in 2020:
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen." - Matthew 28:19, 20. 
Join us October 8-10 at Sandia View Academy for Alumni Weekend 2020! We would love to hear how God has worked through you and your life. We could all benefit from your testimony of God's faithfulness in spite of our faults, failures, successes, and triumphs.

Message From Our President

We are so excited to enter into the year 2020 with so many promises of renewing Sandia View Academy! This Academy has meant so much to so many. It was not just a school; it was our home, our fellowship, our place of belonging! At this time we are calling each and every one of you to make a concerted effort to contribute to the progression of this special place. Our mission is to strive to provide a place for our future generations to not only learn but to grow with God. We recognize that all gifts are truly from God as He has seen fit to continue to provide a Christian education for the children of our future!   I implore you to consider giving back in what ever way you can! We look forward to seeing all of you at Alumni weekend 2020.  - Dawn Vigil, Class of '88
