Over the past few months there have been many changes to the Sandia View Academy Campus. In 2019 all the buildings except the Gymnasium were demolished as their condition had deteriorated to present serious challenges to safety and an exposure to liability. Also during 2019, the Gymnasium was remodeled and the school offices, along with several classrooms, were moved to portable buildings on the west side of the Gym. For the past two school years this new campus arrangement has been a great blessing to the students and staff of SVA.
The Master Plan for the academy calls for the construction of a new academy facility when funds can be made available and student enrollment increases to create a greater need for instructional and other educational support areas. Also included in the Master Plan is a new Soccer Field that is consistent with configurations in use by high school athletes in the United States.
Official construction plans have been created and several donors have stepped up to partner with the Texico Conference to help make this new Soccer Field a reality in the coming school year. It will be exciting to have this wonderful new athletic area available for use by the students in anticipation of being involved in a soccer league and for intramural play as well. There is great enthusiasm for this project as it is another step forward in the development of the new SVA Master Plan.
