to Save Local Academy
At the end of the last school year, a large class graduated from San Fernando Valley Academy—dropping enrollment down for the next year. It appeared that the academy would need to close their doors. When the school’s community learned of the situation, they were inspired to act. The school started receiving donations and enrollment began to climb. “We turned a dark corner by trusting in the Lord,” said Oscar Withmory, principal and business manager at SFVA. Thanks to this community, students will continue to learn about God’s love in the San Fernando Valley.
