South Hills Academy provides a Christ-centered atmosphere that enables students to become socially engaged, effective communicators, and critical thinkers in a global setting.
South Hills Academy was established in 1957 as an elite private school serving the community of San Gabriel Valley. Located in the beautiful hills of West Covina, South Hills Academy continues to provide high academics in a safe and secure environment. With a unique integration of technology, global collaboration, and Christian Values, South Hills Academy stands out as an excellent school for students in preschool through 8th grade.
We are on the cutting edge of implementing the Common Core Standards. These standards serve as the foundation for our rigorous curriculum. We build upon these standards with the addition of STEMS Robotics, higher course standards, Spanish at all grade levels, and cross curricular projects. Our students are taught to be critical thinkers in a rich learning environment who will leave our school prepared to be successful.
Christian education begins in our preschool program and continues throughout their academic career. The curriculum focuses helping each student grow in their walk with God. Bible is taught each day at all grade levels. It is also integrated into our everyday school life.
Our school is a gated campus to ensure our students' safety. There is one main gated entrance with camera entry system. All visitors are screened outside of the gate before they are allowed access to the school. Our five acre facility includes three supervised play areas, athletic fields, pool, and a cafeteria.
Our facility includes a projector and smart boards in each classroom. Students visit our computer lab to learn such skills as word processing, excel, video editing, and research. Our teachers integrate the latest apps into their lessons to expand the students' learning. In Junior High, we have a one-to-one laptop program that allows the students to access information and apply it instantly to their learning. Our school is teaching them how to problem solve so that they can face and solve the problems of tomorrow.
Global Family - Our school is proud to be a part of the TIPS NACE schools. This global network connects us to schools in France, India, Spain, and United Kingdom. Through this international orientation, our school is able to offer our students the opportunity to travel abroad. We are also able to interact with these schools creating a global community. All students have the opportunity to learn Spanish and Chinese on our campus and can broaden their cultural and language base by studying abroad. We believe that this alliance gives our students a unique opportunity to develop necessary skills to be future leaders.
