Welcome to Spring Valley Academy. Our mission is to provide a safe, caring and inclusive learning environment for all students, staff and community through an engaging, collaborative and innovative experience.  We seek to engage our students in a variety of ways through creative expression, innovative thinking and thoughtful discussion. 

Communication at SVA is a priority. We believe collaboration between school and home is a critical component to your child’s education.  Please take time to review your student’s agenda, as it contains important information about school policies and procedures. Also, remember to check the school website for upcoming events, follow us on Twitter @SVAEagles and “like” our Facebook page “Spring Valley Academy.”

We look forward to supporting your child in soaring to new heights and achieving goals.

With gratitude,
Tracy Olander
Principal – Spring Valley Academy

Spring Valley Academy is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme.

This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School.  These are schools that share a common philosophy - a commitment to high quality, challenging international education that Spring Valley Academy believes is important for our students.

Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP) or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit the IB website.

SVA 8th Grade Community Projects

Your 8th grade student should be working on the action portion of his/her Community Project.  Have your scholar share information about the project with you.

All 8th grade students at SVA are required to participate in completing the IB Community Project. Students may work individually or in groups up to 3.  While students will be monitored on their progress through their advisory class, it is expected that students will put forth approximately 15 hours of work outside of school in order to complete the project.  Topic exploration begins in their 7th grade year with research and action to be completed during the 8th grade. Projects are expected to be completed (research, action, presentation) by May of their 8th grade year.
