Challenging our Students Both Inside and Outside the Classroom

The mission of San Pedro Valley Academy is to prepare young men for success in college and careers by supporting and inspiring their academic and personal growth. Our dedicated faculty implements comprehensive individualized academic plans designed to challenge each student to strive for excellence.


We are committed to a very personalized academic program with cooperation and collaboration with teachers and peers as our school climate. Our expectations are high and our students can reach their potential through the development of their self-esteem and the dedication of our teaching staff. To accomplish this, we offer a safe, supportive learning environment, so our students learn and develop the leadership skills necessary to develop positive relationships with others.

We understand the complex nature of the adolescent student and endeavor to work from a strength-based approach, encouraging them to realize their academic strengths and address the weaknesses with the assistance of their teachers.

We are committed to creating an educational environment that stimulates curiosity, intellectual thought, the ability to express ideas and arrive at creative solutions within a community of learners and future co-workers. .


We believe that every student is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to develop emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. We work together as a team to help each one of our students reach his potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas.

When the teacher's role is to guide as well as instruct, the students' search for knowledge is met as they learn to find answers to their questions. For students to construct knowledge, they need the opportunity to discover and practice skills in supportive situations. We strive to provide our students with opportunities to learn with the use of authentic materials and equipping them with the tools they need to succeed in college, work and life.

Equally important to self-discovery is having the opportunity to study things that are meaningful and relevant to one's life and interests. Our model is designed to challenge each student and foster his intrinsic motivation to learn. One way to take learning in a direction relevant to student interest is to invite student dialogue about the lessons and units of study. Our ultimate belief is that with quality instruction and the use of best teaching practices, all students can succeed.

Helping students to develop a deep love and respect for themselves, others, and their environment occurs through an open sharing of ideas. We place a great deal of importance on mutual respect for peers, staff and our learning environment. We have very high standards for excellence in every area; we give and expect nothing less than our personal best in all our endeavors.

We stress integrity and rigor in all aspects of the program.
