We are all created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). For this reason, the primary purpose of Shenandoah Valley Academy is to develop Creator-like powers in our students that are God-given to all humans: creativity, individuality, and the power to think, to choose, and to do. We exist to provide a quality education in an environment where students and staff are in the process of continuously improving their love, trust, and relationships with Jesus Christ and each other. The object of education at Shenandoah Valley Academy, then, is to develop these powers in our students so that they will think and act as individuals, not mere reflectors of someone else’s thoughts and actions.
SVA has access to financial aid for qualifying students for merit-based and need-based assistance. Over 50 percent of our current students receive a total of over $700,000 in financial aid. If students, parents, and the local church do their fair-share, SVA will likely find student aid so that no student will be turned away because of finances.
SVA enrolls well-qualified students in grades 9, 10, 11, and, in some cases, grade 12 that have a sincere interest in a quality education and in developing a personal relationship with Christ.
Shenandoah Valley Academy is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools and is a member of the Virginia Council for Private Education.
