Opportunities Abound for
San Diego Adventist Academy Refugee Students

For the past five years, San Diego Academy has worked with Paradise Valley Church and Friendships for Hope ministry to support the education of many refugee families whose children attend the school. Refugee students at the academy are participants in the National Honor Society, hold class offices, participate in varsity sports and even serve as volunteers for Vacation Bible School. Most importantly, these young people are shown God’s love every day through their teachers and classmates. “It has been a blessing to offer opportunities to the refugee families,” said San Diego Academy Principal Nic Lindquist. “But quite often the blessing goes both ways as their gratitude and Christ-like spirit blesses our student body.”







Students from more than 15 different countries pose together for a photo on the campus of San Diego Academy.

Advanced Ukulele Club
Provides Leadership Opportunities for Summit Christian Academy Students

Summit Christian Academy’s advanced ukulele club recently saw a big change. When no adult volunteers were able to lead the club, students took initiative and chose a president, vice-president, secretary, and sergeant-at-arms. With the help of the club sponsor Sara Willard (first and second-grade teacher), these young people are gaining new experiences in their roles, practicing valuable leadership skills, and continuing to play music they love. A round of well-deserved applause goes to them!





This year at SCA, Elizabeth Blackwelder served as president, Anya Mertz as vice-president, Danica Gibson as secretary, and Gia Lal as sergeant-at-arms of the advanced ukulele club.
