The Texico Conference of Seventh-day Adventists oversees the operation of Sandia View Academy, one junior academy, seven elementary schools and supports three preschools. It is the department’s privilege to encourage and assist in the educational activities of the Texico Conference.

The mission of our schools is to provide each student with a positive Christian environment where they can get to know our Savior, Jesus Christ. Our dedicated Christian teachers and staff enjoy 180 days of scholastic and evangelistic contact with each student yearly. We encourage the mental, physical, social and spiritual development of each child, so they will be successful in both this world and in the world to come.

It is also our goal to provide a Christ centered academic curriculum, teaching responsibility for one’s self, respect for others and reverence for God. By stressing academic excellence integrated with technology and service, every child has the opportunity to become a valuable part of our church and society.

Please join us in prayer as we work daily to help direct the children and youth of our Conference in their walk with the Lord.
