Today, the role of a school is not only to pursue academic excellence but also to motivate and empower its students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and productive members of an ever-changing global society. At Southern Academy of SDA, we provide an atmosphere to our students for multifaceted development, where children are encouraged to channelize their potential in the pursuit of excellence. This can only be possible in a holistic, student-centric environment. The talents, skills, and abilities of each student need to be identified, nurtured, and encouraged so that he / she can reach greater heights. Students need to be provided with a platform to think, express, and exhibit their skills. It is necessary to empower them to negotiate several issues that confront them, with the teacher being a facilitator.

Our school is striving hard to make the best possible efforts to inculcate strong values combining academics and co-curricular activities in the children. Converting every individual into a self-reliant and independent citizen, the school provides a combination of scholastic and co-scholastic activities.

No wonder, a student harnessed in such an atmosphere has every hope and possibility of becoming a responsible, balanced and a mature adult and can live in to contribute and to shoulder responsibilities of the society, of which he forms an integral part. Children need a supportive environment at home and at school. They need to set goals, within their reach until they gain confidence and determination. They should re-examine their priorities, set clean goals and make specific plans to achieve what they desire. Focusing on specific goals, helps them move forward purposefully in life. They would, thus, have the pleasure of watching their dreams turn into reality.

At SASDA our approaches to learning is Christo-Centric and Child-Centric. In our curriculum, the student is the primary focus and each child is involved in the learning process. We are constantly improving our teaching methodology so that it turns learning into a combination of classroom study, research and scientific discovery.

While academic excellence is our major thrust, the school is also devoted to preparing the students for life, groom them to face the challenges of tomorrow, and encourage them to be socially relevant. We constantly endeavour to always live up to this ideology and inculcate this into everything we do, with the aim that we will be able to ensure that the children grow to their full potential, while constantly being groomed to pass out as men and women competent to bear responsibility in all walks of life.

Our parents and constituency churches are the most strengthening power in moulding the future of children. Their consistent support empowers us to do more and more. I pay my gratitude for your faith in us.
